Get a season pass for our summer term of poetry translation workshops. Our friendly, inclusive workshops are a great way to meet like-minded people, dig deeper into language and discover new poets. Each week we translate a new poem by a living poet from Asia, Africa or Latin America. From our office in The Albany, Deptford, we travel the world uncovering vital poetic voices and getting real insights into new cultures. 

How does it work?

Led by the PTC's Commissioning Editor, the poet Edward Doegar, each workshop is a chance to discover a fresh new poet from Asia, Africa or Latin America. Each week we are joined by a guest-translator, a language expert who introduces the group to a poet and their work, offering insights into their creative process and cultural context. Starting from a bridge-translation the group works towards a new English language version of the poem. The process combines problem-solving with creative thinking, and the results are always fascinating. 

The Poetry Translation Centre's collaborative translation workshops are a great way to support international poets and find out more about vibrant cultures from around the world. 

The workshops are open to all. There is no need to know the language being translated.
