Workshop on Arabic Poetry by Hazim Al-Temimi from Iraq
In the first of our community workshops for Arabic speakers led by Worod Musawi, the participants produced a literal translation of the poem 'One Day' by Hazim Al-Temimi from Iraq. In this workshop, we completed the translation process.
This was the last workshop for the summer. We'll be back on Wednesday 5th October. See you there!
Our poetry translation workshops are one of the PTC's core activities. Through them we've first encountered some of the poets we've gone on to translate, publish and record at length. A significant number of the poets who've visited the UK to take part in our tours were introduced to us by a translator bringing their poems to a workshop.
The workshops are open to anyone who can contribute a translation of a poem by a living African, Asian or Latin American poet who has an established reputation in their own language.
Workshops are free but places are limited so advance booking is essential. If you've not attended one of our workshops before, please read this before booking a place.
