Literary Translation for Poets

All Levels | This one-day workshop introduces the process and ethics of literary translation, offering firsthand experience with multiple approaches to the translation of a poem. Students will go home with four new poems—two differing translations of a poem provided by the instructor, a personal response to that poem, and an experimental homophonic translation of another poem—plus new tools and insights into your own poetic practice. (Instructor will provide a short Chinese poem, with literal translation and transliterations.)

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
