Following on from our first Translation Week in October 2017, we continue our partnership with the National Centre for Writing to welcome 7 translators to take part in a one-week programme including discussion workshops, sharing work with fellow translators, and time and space to work on translation projects.
The participating translators 2019 include: Kari Dickson (workshop leader), Polly Barton (Japanese), Jozefina Komporaly (Hungarian and Romanian), Jozef van der Voort (Dutch and German), Zoë Perry (Portuguese), Katherine Mendelsohn (French) and Ayça Türkoğlu (Turkish and German).
Zoë Perry translates contemporary Portuguese-language literary fiction and creative non-fiction. In 2015 she was translator-in-residence at the FLIP international literary festival in Paraty, Brazil, and was awarded a PEN/Heim grant for her translation of Veronica Stigger’s novel Opisanie świata. She is a founding member of the Starling Bureau, a collective of London-based literary translators.
