Summer Literary Translation Workshops for Italian Translators of Irish Literature

Translating Irish Literature: our third series of literary translation workshops will take place 19 – 23 June, 2023. Join us for a series of workshops which help practicing and aspiring translators of Irish literature to fine-tune their skills with expert tutors.

The workshops will be run remotely over Zoom and are open to recent literary translation graduates as well as current professionals working in translation with an interest in Irish literature. This year, we are pleased to announce that the workshops will be run in partnership with the Trinity Centre for Literary and Cultural Translation at Trinity College Dublin.

Courses will be offered in four languages: Czech, Dutch, French and Italian. The 5-day workshops will offer 20 hours of intensive literary translation training by expert tutors and will focus on fiction, poetry and non-fiction works translated from English. There will also be three additional evening guest lectures focusing on broad skills and themes associated with translating Irish literature.

The application is a CV and brief cover letter, emailed to by Monday, 12th June.
