    Translator and novelist, Katriina Ranne, joins us for a second workshop on poetry in Swahili by Euphrase Kezilahabi from Tanzania. We had a fascinating time at the workshop a month ago when we translated two poems by Euphrase Kezilahabi, 'Evening Tea' and 'The Banana Plant', so we're looking forward to having another chance to translate more of his poems.

    Our poetry translation workshops are one of the PTC's core activities. Through them we've first encountered some of the poets we've gone on to translate, publish and record at length. A significant number of the poets who've visited the UK to take part in our tours were introduced to us by a translator bringing their poems to a workshop.

    The workshops are open to anyone who can contribute a translation of a poem by a living African, Asian or Latin American poet who has an established reputation in their own language.

    Workshops are free but places are limited so advance booking is essential. If you've not attended one of our workshops before, please read this before booking a place.
