Wales Literature Exchange is organising a special event in March 2010 to mark a visit to Wales by a poet and translator from Slovenia. Barbara Pogačnik has been invited by Translators' House Wales for a month’s residency at Tŷ Newydd: National Writers’ Centre in Llanystumdwy, Gwynedd.
At a public event on Tuesday 9 March 2010, she will talk about her work with poet and academic, Damian Walford Davies from Aberystwyth who is working with Barbara on translations of her poems into Welsh. Local chef Rhodri Edwards will be preparing food for the occasion and a selection of short films showcasing Wales Literature Exchange's Bookcase writers will be shown.
The event will be held at 8.00pm at Ynyswen, Borth, and tickets are available through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Barbara Pogačnik’s residency has been organised through Translators’ House Wales and the HALMA network.
