Cove Park is pleased to offer residencies to literary translators as part of our Funded Literature Summer Programme in 2020.

Annie Rutherford is based in Edinburgh, albeit with frequent stints in Germany, where, as she describes it, ‘she makes things with words, and champions poetry and translates literature in all its guises’. Annie works as Programme Co-ordinator for StAnza, Scotland’s International Poetry Festival, and as a writer and translator. Translating predominantly from German, she also works from French, Russian and Belarusian. She is currently working on translations of Volha Hapeyeva, Kinga Toth, Nora Gomringer and Annette von Droste-Hülshoff. During her residency at Cove Park, she plans to focus on completing her translation of Nora Gomringer’s poetic trilogy and creating a sample translation and pitch to publishers of Volha Hapeyeva’s novella, Camel Travel.
