Monash University: Literary Translation Spring School
Monash University’s fifth Literary Translation Spring School is run by the Translation & Interpreting Studies program, and aimed at students, writers, professional translators, language teachers and anyone interested in literary translation.
The Literary Spring School will be a 3-day residential program of hands-on translation practice, accompanied by discussions on the topic of translating poetry.
This will be an exciting opportunity to network with other translators, writers, publishers and academics. Daily translation workshops are led by an expert translator together with the author of the text to be translated. Working languages for the 2017 Spring School are: German, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.
