From 26 June until 1 July 2017, City, University of London, in conjunction with the Translators Association of the Society of Authors, will organise the fourth literary translation summer school, ‘Translate at City’.

The 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 15 students to allow for individual attention, and places will be allocated on a strictly ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Mornings will be spent working on a piece of fiction on a continuous basis and the afternoons will be dedicated to translating short pieces in a variety of genres. Furthermore, the school offers a programme of lunchtime and evening events, including lectures and talks on topics related to developing your skills and getting published as a literary translator, a translation slam and a literary translation competition. There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking with publishers, agents and City staff.

The cost of £520 includes a full programme of tuition; lunchtime and evening events; entry to a literary translation competition; morning and afternoon refreshments and a light lunch. Accommodation is however not included.
