International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School

International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School

British Centre for Literary Translation, UEA, Norwich

24 – 30 July 2016

The 2016 BCLT summer school will take place at the University of East Anglia and at Dragon Hall, flagship building for Norwich UNESCO City of Literature. Run by the British Centre for Literary Translation in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich, the summer school brings together writers and translators for an intensive, one-week, residential programme of hands-on translation and creative writing practice.

Languages on offer this year include German, Korean, Russian and Swedish.  We will be running two further multilingual workshops, one for poetry and one for prose, designed for translators working from any language into English. The programme will include creative writing sessions designed for literary translators as well as lectures and readings.

Application deadline is 15 May 2016. For programme details and to apply, please see the website.

Translations from previous summer schools and international workshops are available in the translation section of New Writing.
