Are you based in Cameroon? Are you a literary translator or do you want to be one?
Bakwa Magazine, in collaboration with the University of Bristol, is pleased to announce that applications are open for an exciting literary translation workshop aimed at building networks and sustainability for literary translators.
If you are a student translator or professional translator and you are from Cameroon and live in or can travel to Yaoundé, you are exactly who we are looking for.
The workshop, scheduled for 21-26 October 2019, will be co-facilitated by established literary translators Ros Schwartz, Georgina Collins, and Edwige Dro. Over the course of the workshop, you will attend a range of practical sessions introducing you to literary translation across genres and forms, as well as more theoretical issues. Participants will also work on translating a short story from the Bakwa Young Writers’ Workshop. After the workshop, you will be paired with an expert mentor who will work with you for ten weeks to complete your short story translation.
