Poetry and Translation with Erín Moure

May 27, 2021, 11:00 AM1:00 PM EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 AM on Thursday, repeating until May 27, 2021

Over the six weeks this program will create a relaxing and intriguing online group workspace to discuss poems that participants want to translate. (Poems, or mixed-genre texts, or any text that you wish to workshop alongside poems!) The program will privilege curiosity, helpfulness, a bit of risk-taking to carry us forward, and we’ll share skills and linguistic music. We’ll start week 1 with a poetry translation exercise to get us all talking, sharing, and listening while thinking about the poem: visually, aurally, linguistically. Following that, we’ll workshop poems/texts that participants bring, 3 to 4 per week: the translator will read the original poem, and their translation in progress, then speak of the difficulties they’ve encountered and their progress in solutions, and get feedback from others.
