Translation workshop with Cuban poet

To coincide with the launch of the 2013 Translation Challenge, we are organising an afternoon poetry translation workshop in partnership with Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru at Tŷ Newydd, Llanystumdwy on June the 22nd.

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.

For more information about the course, please contact Sally Baker on 01766 523 552.

Translation Challenge 2013

Victor, who is one of our translators in residence in May-June 2013, will announce and read the poem selected for the Translation Challenge during the workshop. The adjudicator will be Ned Thomas.

A knowledge of Spanish is not essential.
