Workshop on Poetry from Iran by Fariba Shadloo with Alireza Abiz
Poet and translator, Alireza Abiz, joined us for a workshop on poetry by Iranian poet, Fariba Shadloo, one of the most interesting young Iranian women poets whose work is beginning to receive critical acclaim. We translated six of her tiny, delicate lyrics all of which can now be read on our website by following the link to her profile.
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.
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.
