WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose).

The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

The Wide World: Translating Poetry, an ongoing monthly workshop with Sarah Arvio (via Zoom)

September 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm


The Wide World: Translating Poetry, an ongoing monthly workshop with Sarah Arvio (via Zoom)

Join season #3 of my vibrant, ongoing workshop.
There is nothing so beautiful as transforming a poem from a foreign language into your own language! In this class we work on translating poems from any language into English.  To begin, we work on texts already translated; so that the existing texts can serve as a comparison.   We talk about voice, rhythm, style, tone, and diction level; we learn the pleasures of perusing dictionaries and thesauruses. All levels of skill and experience are welcome.
Monthly for six months.
9/10, 10/8, 11/5, 12/3, 1/7, 2/5
I will also offer a beginner’s session on August 20, for those who would like some guidance before joining the group.

This class will be taught online using Zoom. Login instructions will be emailed on the day before the workshop. There will be a different Zoom link each month. Please check spam/promotions filters or email [email protected] with questions.

Sarah Arvio is the author of Cry Back My Sea (2021), night thoughts: 70 dream poems & notes from an analysis (2013), Sono: cantos (2006), and Visits from the Seventh (2002), for which she won the Rome Prize of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. All four books were published by Alfred A. Knopf. Her translations of poems and a play by Federico García Lorca, Poet in Spain, was published by Knopf in 2017, to wide critical acclaim.
