Sententia Vera CoWorking Space
The local coffeehouse has been a gathering place in which locals purchase their beloved cup of coffee and favorite pastry, as well as a meeting place and a brainstorming spot for creative entrepreneurs. In short, the local coffeehouse was the original coworking space.
Sententia Vera CoWorking Community is a coworking space in the Hill Country of Central Texas that aims to provide the entrepreneur, contractor, and telecommuter with a working space in a supporting community. Sententia Vera’s Coworking Community is a shared professional environment supporting entrepreneurs, freelancers/contractors, and work-at-home professionals, in their goal to work in an inclusive, collaborative, and creative environment, while also having the benefit of a quiet and private space.
As a shared coworking community, Sententia Vera offers its members shared resources and ideas, and the exchange of consulting services between members to bring fresh ideas to business branding, marketing, development, public engagement, and certifications.
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.
Duration: Six weeks
Cost: $169.95 for Writer’s Center members; $190 for non-members
