ICI London supports the Bristol Translates Literary Translation Summer School, which will take place from 3 to 7 July 2023. Applications are now open.
Aimed at practising translators at any stage of their career and at language enthusiasts who want to explore the world of literary translation, Bristol Translates offers the opportunity to work with leading professional translators to translate texts across the literary genres into English. Bristol Translates summer school takes place entirely online, making it accessible to participants around the world. Groups will be limited to a maximum of 12 students.
There will be three full days of translation workshops, on Monday 3, Wednesday 5 and Friday 7 July, while Tuesday 4 and Thursday 6 July will be devoted to non-language-specific workshops and industry talks as well as professional and networking sessions. These include panels with publishers and themed sessions on what goes on behind the scenes in publishing, translating literary nonfiction, queer translation, war translation, theatre translation, kidslit, translating multilingualism, negotiating skills and much more. There will be also an opportunity to practise pitching to publishers and a presentation by English PEN.
In addition to workshops dedicated to translation from a single language, there will be a multilingual workshop, led by Daniel Hahn. You are welcome to apply for a place as a translator from any language into English.
