Translation workshop with Cuban poet

The 2013 Translators’ House Wales Translation Challenge will be launched on Saturday the 22nd of June at Tŷ Newydd, Llanystumdwy. This year the challenge will be to translate into Welsh or English a poem by Cuban poet, Víctor Rodríguez Núñez.

To coincide with the launch of the 2013 Translation Challenge, we are organising an afternoon poetry translation workshop in partnership with Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru. 

The workshop will be led by Víctor Rodríguez Núñez, his translator, Katherine Hedeen, and Ned Thomas. Víctor will use his own poetry, in Spanish, as the basis of the workshop and together participants will explore how a poem in one language can be transformed into a poem in another.

Victor, who is currently one of our translators in residence, will announce and read his chosen poem at this event. The adjudicator is Ned Thomas.

A knowledge of Spanish is not essential.
