Workshop on Poetry in Swahili by Alamin Mazrui

Workshop on Poetry in Swahili by Alamin Mazrui

Translator Katriina Ranne joined us for a workshop on poetry in Swahili by the distinguished Kenyan poet, Alamin Mazrui in which we translated three more of his frank and powerful poems, 'Door', 'Shoulder to Shoulder' and 'In Prison'.

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.
