Workshop on Poetry in Spanish and Shuar by María Clara Sharupi Jua from Ecuador

Workshop on Poetry in Spanish and Shuar by María Clara Sharupi Jua from Ecuador

The final workshop of 2011 promises to be a very special occasion. Nataly Kelly is travelling all the way from Boston USA to join us for a workshop on the poetry of María Clara Sharupi Jua from Ecuador, a poet who writes in Spanish and in Shuar, one of the ancient indigenous languages of the rainforest in which she grew up.

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.
