Kathryn Gray joins Doris Kareva from Estonia and Indian poets writing in several languages in Kolkata at the end of January for a poetry translation workshop led by Akshay Pathak on behalf of Literature Across Frontiers. There will be a performance following the workshop at the Kolkata Literary Meet. The worshop was originally going to be held in Kathmandu, Nepal, at the end of November but was swiftly rescheduled due to the political situation there. It follows on from a number of translation workshops held in India since 2010, starting with Poetry Connections, which also brought together European and Indian poets. You can watch a short film by D W Gibson about that workshop below.
