To kick of our 2008 World Poets’ Tour, W N Herbert and Sarah Maguire appeared at the Bristol Poetry Festival on to talk about their experiences of translating the works of Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi and Maxamed Xaashi Dhamac ‘Gaarriye’.
For the third in our series of workshops concerning our upcoming World Poets’ Tour, we were joined by Jo Shapcott and Narguess Farzad for a fascinating discussion about their translations of poems by Farzaneh Khojandi from Tajikistan.
