Event Date: 27/08/2015 17:00 - 18:00

The CPD workshop, Poetic Translation with the Scottish Poetry Library, takes place as part of the festival on Thursday 27 August from 5.00pm–6.00pm.

Think you can’t translate a poem from one language into another? This event will prove you wrong. Mexican poet Juana Adcock and Georgi Gill, Learning Manager at the Scottish Poetry Library, guide you through the craft of creating a nuanced translation. Find out how different cultures express ideas differently and how a creative approach can make a translation come to life.

Piloted in Edinburgh schools, this is a flexible approach to primary school language learning and creative writing with fun, fast-paced exercises.
