This will be an intensive pen-on-paper – physical or digital – approach to practical translation of fiction, non-fiction, poetry or any other form. Students will work on producing 20,000 words in translation from a language of their choice into English. We will be translating every week, sharing our translations with one another, critiquing them, and solving translation-related problems that we encounter through discussion and debate. Since this is a workshop, feedback and suggestions to the work being done by the entire class will be a crucial aspect of this course.
Students should have completed the Introduction to Creative Writing Course.
