In Other Words: Translation Workshop - German

Translate a poem by Cornelia Hülmbauer from German

This year we will be repeating our popular translation workshops with festival translators and poets. Translating poems heard at the festival enables you to explore the poetry and the poet in greater depth, discover how creative and meticulous the translation process is, and experience the fact that translating poetry is about so much more than simply finding ‘the right word’. At the workshop, discuss your own translation with the festival translator and meet the poet, who will be able to tell you more about the poem. 

In this workshop you will discuss your translation of a poem by Cornelia Hülmbauer with Erik de Smedt, who has translated the poems Hülmbauer will read this festival.
