Translators at work: while you wait

Translator in Residence: Sarah Letza

In partnership with Aston University and the established translators Roz Schwartz and Daniel Hahn, Writing West Midlands has appointed Sarah Letza as Translator in Residence 2022/23.

Sarah will be working with a small team of translators from Aston University’s Translation Studies MA to offer ‘while you wait’ translations of short pieces of poetry or fiction into a range of languages. 

This is a drop-in activity and Festival visitors are welcome to come along with some of their own creative writing for our translators to work on. They will share the process they go through when translating and will be talking informally about their passion for translation of all forms.

Come along to see new writing finding new readerships.

Sunday 9 October, 1pm – 3pm
The Foyer, Birmingham Rep
