“Warwick Translates Summer School” offers the opportunity to translate texts across the literary genres into English, working with leading professional translators. Groups will be limited to a maximum of 20 students to allow for individual attention. Places will be allocated on a strictly ‘first-come-first-served’ basis.

The course will be taught in an all-day workshop environment using a variety of texts including non-fiction (essays, journalism, academic) and fiction (poetry, fantasy, children’s literature, crime writing). Lunch time events will include discussion panels with publishers and editors. Evening events will include a Translation Slam and a keynote Lecture by Preti Taneja: ‘Translating Shakespeare in conflict and post-conflict zones: the challenge to “universal” human rights’.
