If you register at the $125 or $200 levels, you’ll be able to sign up for one online translation workshop and two pitch sessions. Learn more about workshops and pitch sessions here:
These 90-minute workshops will be limited to small groups of 6-8 translators, and they are designed to help you develop your translation skills by providing feedback on a section of your work. These workshops will be led by award-winning translators including Susan Bernofsky, Daniel Hahn, Deborah Smith, Katrine Øgaard Jensen, Bill Johnston, and Katherine Hedeen. Once you’ve signed up for the workshop of your choice, you’ll share a brief text in your translation with your workshop leader and the other participants.
Pitch sessions are 5-minute meetings with editors of translation presses and journals, where you can pitch a book (for presses) or short translation (for journals) for consideration for publication. Participating presses and journals include And Other Stories, New Directions, The Common, Tilted Axis Press, Transit Books, Two Lines Press, Ugly Duckling Presse, Veliz Books, Words Without Borders, and World Editions.
If you want to sign up for workshops and pitch sessions, be sure to register at the $125 or $200 level (registering at the $200 level helps us keep prices low for everyone!). Registration for these levels ends on August 31st.
And to the extent that you are able, please give to ensure that ALTA can continue its work.
We look forward to seeing, workshopping, and pitching with you at ALTA43 starting September 30!
