Workshop on Poetry by Ali Abdollahi from Iran with Alireza Abiz

Workshop on Poetry by Ali Abdollahi from Iran with Alireza Abiz

Alireza Abiz joined us for a workshop on the influential and extremely prolific poet and translator, Ali Abdollahi, from Iran in which we translated four of his wry and insightful poems, 'Memories of Seclusion', 'On the Tomb of a Peace-Loving Man', 'The Half Facing the Sky', 'From: Garrison Poems'.

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 has the skills to translate the poetry of a living African, Asian or Latin American poet with an established reputation in their own language. You don't need to send us your translations before you join us.

If you've not attended one of our workshops before, please read this before booking a place.

Workshop places are limited so advance booking is essential.
