Part of: The Poetry Translation Centre's Latinx Showcase An Introduction to Translating Poetry at Ledbury Poetry Festival

Heritage Centre

How would you translate a poem? Join translator Jon Herring and poet-translator Leo Boix for a unique poetry translation workshop that anyone can join. Led by these facilitators, you’ll collaborate with other participants to explore the art of translation, and create a group translation of a poem from Spanish into English. No experience of Spanish, translation or poetry is necessary to take part. The group’s translation will be published on the Poetry Translation Centre website, joining an international archive of hundreds of poems. This workshop is presented by the Poetry Translation Centre, celebrating its 20th birthday throughout 2024.
