During the AGM the delegates heard extensive reports on the working groups and their future projects.

The meeting also included a round-table discussion on various aspects of working conditions, authors’ rights and translators’ visibility with Masters-level translation students.

The main public event was connected to the International Literary Festival Utrecht (ILFU (http://www NULL.ilfu NULL.nl/)), where among other things the festival guests could attend a translation slam with Shaun Whiteside and Laura Watkinson who translated a poem by Hannah van Binsbergen.

CEATL would like to thank the organizers, the Dutch association Auteursbond (http://auteursbond NULL.nl/) (Boekvertalers and Literair vertalers), and the Expertisecentrum Literair Vertalen (http://literairvertalen NULL.org/), the Nederlands Leterenfonds (http://www NULL.letterenfonds NULL.nl/en/) (Dutch Foundation for Literature) and Lira (http://www NULL.lira NULL.nl/) for a warm welcome and smooth proceedings during the entire AGM.
