The second part of the Scottish-German translation workshop (Part 1 on Tue 10.6)

The poesiefestival berlin invited some of Scotland’s most outstanding poets to meet up with German-speaking colleagues for the VERSschmuggel translation workshop.

The poets work in pairs on the translation, supported by intermediaries and interlinear translations. Through this process, an intensive smuggling of cultural connotations, poetic traditions, and compositional processes develops. The results of the workshops will be presented on two evenings. They also appear as a bilingual anthology with a CD in Scotland (with Freight Books) and in Germany (with the publishing house Das Wunderhorn).

Kindly supported by: British Council, Creative Scotland, Österreichisches Kulturforum Berlin.
