In each workshop, participants work with a writer-in-residence under the guidance of a workshop leader, who is an experienced literary translator. There will also be opportunities to meet editors and other guests from the publishing sector. Sessions run from 9.00 – 4.30pm each day and are followed by plenary events and panel discussions, including the presentation of the 2012 John Dryden Translation Prizes. At the end of the week everyone comes together to present their work.
