A quick reminder about this - I have very happy memories of this summer school and it should be a brilliant experience for peeps (and indeed now tweeps!) with an interest in literary translation:
Call for participants: British
Centre for Literary Translation Summer School
University of East Anglia, Norwich, United
22-27 July 2012
The British Centre for Literary Translation Summer School, now in
its 12th year, runs July 22-27 in Norwich (UK). This is a fabulous
opportunity to work with not only leading translators, but also
the best in contemporary writers from around the world. This year
we are offering workshops translating into English from Dutch,
French, German, Japanese, Norwegian and Spanish.
Writers in residence: Daniel Gascón , Nino Haratischwili, Furukawa
Hideo, Martin Page, Gustaaf Peek, Kjersti Skomsvold
Workshop leaders: David Colmer, Kari Dickson, Katy Derbyshire,
Michael Emmerich, Adriana Hunter, Anne McLean
In each workshop, participants work with a writer-in-residence
under the guidance of a workshop leader, who is an experienced
literary translator. There will also be opportunities to meet
editors and other guests from the publishing sector. Sessions run
from 9.00 - 4.30pm each day and are followed by plenary events
and panel discussions, including the presentation of the 2012 John
Dryden Translation Prizes. At the end of the week everyone comes
together to present their work.
