WORTH

  • There will also be plenary sessions on subjects such as translation theory and building a career as a translator.

ELIGIBILITY

We are looking for:

  • Early to mid-career literary translators working in Kiswahili–English translation
  • Bilingual creative writers interested in exploring literary translation as a way to expand their writing practice
  • More experienced literary translators and academics who are interested in translation teaching and methodologies, and in running translation workshops themselves
