THE POET / TRANSLATOR READING SERIES

Since 2013, the Poet/Translator Reading Series has showcased creative writers reading from their own work alongside works that they have translated — to striking effect. In 2014, the series expanded to feature students of the Literary Translation Workshop at The New School. The readings have featured writer-translators working from Arabic, Modern Hebrew, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Albanian, Norwegian, Swedish, Turkish, Odia, and Ukrainian.
