Literary Translation Workshops - part 3

Due to the popularity of our previous series of translation workshops, Flip Through Flanders is launching another three online translation workshops as part of its initiative to promote Dutch-language literature from Flanders across the UK and Ireland and to nurture the next generation of translators.

Translation workshop part 3

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. Details of the workshops are:

  • Fiction workshop with Michele Hutchison on Monday 15th July from 10.00 – 12.00 (Dutch time) /  09.00 – 11.00 (UK time)
  • Nonfiction workshop with Jonathan Reeder on Friday 6th September from 15.00 – 17.00 (Dutch time) /  14.00 – 16.00 (UK time)
  • Theatre translation workshop with David McKay on Tuesday 19th November from 11:00 - 13:00 (Dutch time) / 10:00 - 12:00 (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.
