Bielawski – Sunday, Jun 6, 1-2:15 pm (Online)


This class is open to all languages! Since this is an introductory and a non-language-specific course, we will use our time together to familiarize ourselves with important concepts pertaining to all translational work. Translating is excellent practice for writers of all kinds, so this class is recommended for any writer. You do not have to be fluent (by any means) in another language to translate from that language into English. People with current translation projects underway are welcome, as are people who have never translated before, but are curious about the subject. Please bring a small piece of writing (or an excerpt) in another language to class.
