My creative writing and literary translation workshops have been in association with places including The British Library, The Poetry School, British Centre for Literary Translation, Grand Union Gallery, Doolin Writers’ Weekend and various universities in the UK and US.
I have mentored emerging literary translators for the British Council/London Book Fair, as well as independently. I’ve also completed training to be an Associate Tutor for undergraduates and postgraduates in the humanities (training provided by the University of East Anglia).
I devise and lead workshops on creative writing and literary translation. These can be for writers writing in English and/or literary translators working from any language into English. Fiction, poetry, and German-to-English literary translation are my specialisms.
If you’re an organisation, institution or university looking to book a creative writing and/or literary translation workshop I can create a workshop suitable for different abilities and skills.
I offer low-cost mentorships to emerging literary translators from any language into English for 2, 4, 6 or 12 hours taken in 1-2 hour slots in person in London and/or over Skype. Please contact me for rates.
I’m particularly keen to mentor emerging writers and translators who are BAME; living with a disability or illness; who are from less privileged backgrounds; those who haven’t attended university; and/or are the first in their family to attend university.
My books are currently closed for one-on-one mentoring.
