Literary Translation Workshops - part 2

Due to the popularity of our previous series of translation workshops, Flip Through Flanders and New Dutch Writing are launching another three online translation workshops as part of our campaigns to promote Dutch literature in translation from Flanders and the Netherlands in the UK, and to nurture the next generation of translators.

Each two hour workshop will be led by a leading translator from Dutch to English and will focus on a 1-2 page literary text. 

  • Fiction workshop with Kristen Gehrman on Friday 20th October from 10.00 – 12.00 (Dutch time) /  09.00 – 11.00 (UK time)
  • Non Fiction workshop with David McKay on Thursday 23rd November from 17.00 – 19.00 (Dutch time) /  16.00 – 18.00 (UK time)
  • Graphic Novel workshop with Anna Asbury and Laura Vroomen on Monday 4th December from 10.00 – 12.00 (Dutch time) / 09.00 – 11.00 (UK time)

Anyone with an interest in translation can take part in the workshop, whether you are a multilingual keen reader who has always wanted to have a go at literary translation, or a professional translator of any sort. All that is required is a sound knowledge of Dutch, native-speaker level English and a lot of enthusiasm! All workshops are free to participants and will take place online. 

The series of translation workshops is part of New Dutch Writing, a campaign funded and organised by the Dutch Foundation for Literature, and Flip through Flanders, an initiative that promotes Dutch-language literature from Flanders across the UK and Ireland.
