Kenyon Review’s summer translation workshop is open for submissions! The workshop will take place July 12-18, 2020 and applications are rolling, but closing soon.
From the website:
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. By the end of the week, writers will have finished a polished translation that they may continue to prepare for publication.
