Part of: Late Winter Poetry Translation Workshops 2023 More poems by Armenian Turkish poet Karin Karakaşlı

Online Via Zoom

The Poetry Translation Centre first worked with Karin Karakaşlı in 2017 when we published a chapbook of her poems translated by Canan Marasligil with Sarah Howe, and she came over to tour the UK. As well as poetry Karakaşlı has written a children’s novel, books of short stories and worked as a translator as well as a newspaper editor and columnist for the Turkish-Armenian weekly newspaper Agos. We will be working again with multilingual & intersectional feminist writer, artist, and literary translator Canan Marasligil to translate new poetry by this Armenian Turkish poet.
