Our workshops are the driving force behind our work. Join like-minded poetry enthusiasts and help us to make new poems in English.
The translations simply would not exist without the PTC forging new links between poets and arranging translation workshops.

The Poetry Translation Centre has translated, shared and celebrated international poets for over a decade. Our work introduces new poems and poets to English readers, expands the English poetic tradition, and opens windows onto the many cultures that live side by side in the UK.
