‘Warwick Translates’ is the first literary translation summer school to be held at the University of Warwick (UK). It 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, and 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 and crime writing etc.). The programme also includes a non-language specific workshop on theatre translation.

The programme offers plenty of opportunities for networking with publishers, agents, Warwick staff and fellow participants. Lunchtime events will include discussion panels with publishers and editors. Evening events will include a Translation Slam and a Keynote Lecture by Preti Taneja (https://warwick NULL.ac NULL.uk/fac/arts/wtss/speakerbios/) entitled ‘Translating Shakespeare in conflict and post-conflict zones: the challenge to “universal” human rights’.

The cost of £495 includes all tuition on the course, light refreshments twice a day, and a sandwich lunch. Accommodation is not included.

5 bursaries of £495 each are offered to external applicants.
