Part of: Women Poets in Translation: Newcastle Poetry Festival An introduction to translating poetry, with Natalia Bukia-Peters and Mymona Bibi

Northern Stage
Newcastle upon Tyne

How would you translate a poem?

Join translator Natalia Bukia-Peters and poet Mymona Bibi from Brown Girls Write 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 the unique Georgian language into English. No experience of Georgian, translation or poetry is necessary to take part.

You’ll come out of this workshop with a greater understanding of translation, Georgian culture, and how to make any poem dance on the page. 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, supported by Arts Council England.
