Applications Open for the Kenyon Review Translator’s Voice Summer Workshop!

1200x630 Translation instructors

Looking for some time to focus on your literary translation project? How about a week with the stellar folks from Kenyon Review on the gorgeous Kenyon College campus? Applications for the Kenyon Review‘s Translator’s Voice polyglot summer workshop are open!

The week-long non-language-specific workshop offers an opportunity for aspiring and mid-career literary translators with a variety of professional backgrounds to couple their creative writing interests with their passion for working between languages. Writers focus on close reading and experimentation with language and style from a strong second language into English. The workshop is conducted seminar-style and activities focus on literary translation as a cross-cultural, creative endeavor, using theoretical readings and examples of works of master translators as guides.

The workshop is limited to 10 participants. Applicants are screened on a rolling basis and are required to submit a translation sample of 500 words of prose or three pages of poetry from their source language into English. This class is team taught by Elizabeth Lowe, professor of translation at New York University and founder of the Center for Translation Studies at the University of Illinois, and Katherine M. Hedeen, professor of Spanish and literary translation at Kenyon College.
