Manchester in Translation – Literary Translation Workshop: Arabic to English with Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp

21 February '19 at 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

FREE (max. 12 spaces, see below).

This workshop is aimed at would-be translators of Arabic fiction and prose. Groups will work on collaborative translations of texts across different genres, guided by experienced literary translator Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp.

All workshops translate into English, therefore it is essential that all participants must have proficiency in the source language (reading proficiency not just spoken) and have English at close to native speaker level. Groups will be limited to a maximum of 12 people to allow for individual attention, and applicants will be asked to answer a few quick questions when booking to determine their suitability for the workshop. This information will be shared with the workshop facilitators who will review before confirming your place.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 20 January. The organisers reserve the right to cancel a workshop that does not recruit the required minimum number of participants. Any applicants for these groups will be notified with a minimum of two weeks’ notice.
