Online Workshop in Poetry & Translation by Yvette Neisser Moreno

Yvette Neisser Moreno

 

Starting October 1st, poet and translator, Yvette Neisser Moreno, will be teaching an online poetry translation workshop via The Writer’s Center. Now, for the first time, Neisser Moreno’s translation workshop is open to any English speaker with internet access, anywhere in the world! Any interested students, poets, linguists, may contact Ms. Neisser Moreno for more information.

Playing Another Tune: Poetry and Translation

It is no coincidence that most famous poets also have translated poetry. Translating allows you to deeply understand how a poem is composed and to stretch your poetry muscles—by playing with words—while following someone else’s script. We will begin by reading short essays by poets about how
translating has influenced their own writing. Then, the workshop will follow this format: Students (1) translate a poem they love (from any language into English); (2) share what they discovered about the poet’s techniques or style; and (3) write their own poem using those techniques or style. Both translations and original poems will receive feedback from instructor and classmates.

Dates: 10/1/2012-11/9/2012
Duration: Six weeks
Location: Online
Cost: $169.95 for Writer’s Center members; $190 for non-members
