Second Workshop on Italian Poetry from Eritrea by Ribka Sibhatu
In January André Naffis-Sahely led a fascinating workshop on the poetry of Ribka Sibhatu in which we translated two of her poems, 'Virginity' and 'Mother Africa'. We're very much looking forward to having another chance of encountering her remarkable poetry and, in this second workshop, we translated three more of her poems, 'My Abebà', 'Grandmother Moon' and 'Word'.
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.
