David Colmer & Radna Fabias: Ledbury Poetry Festival

Sunday 3 Jul 2022, 10:00 to 12:00

The Heritage Centre
Church Lane


Join leading translator David Colmer, together with Dutch poet and translator herself, Radna Fabias, as they guide you through the unique process of literary translation. The workshop will give you the opportunity to translate a Dutch poem and render it in English. As well as covering the myriad of considerations and complexities that are taken into account when translating, the workshop will prepare you for any future collaborative poetry translations with native speakers of other languages, or for your own translations of poems in languages you speak yourself. Colmer and Fabias contributors to Carcanet's Dutch anthology Grand Larcenies: Translations and Imitations of Ten Dutch Poets, edited and translated by P.C. Evans.
Please note that no knowledge of Dutch will be required to take part in this workshop.
