PTC Workshop: Translate Adelaide Ivánova with Francisco Vilhena

Earlier this year when we first translated Adelaide Ivánova the PTC workshop was dazzled by the breadth of references in her work; everything from Portuguese battleships to song lyrics by Nirvana was part of her rich mix. Francisco Vilhena returns with more poems by this talented poet and artist. Award-winning poet Clare Pollard will be facilitating.

There is no need to know the language being translated, just come along!

Adelaide Ivánova is a Brazilian poet and artist (b. Recife, 1982). She lives between Berlin and Cologne. Her first poetry collection, O Martelo (The Hammer) was published in 2016. Her work has been featured in English in Clinic and Alba Londres.

Francisco Vilhena is an assistant editor at Granta. He translates from the Portuguese. His work has appeared in Granta, Wasafiri, Clinic and other publications.
