Self-Editing for Literary Translation

  • 11/16/2023
  • 17:30 - 19:30
  • Online via Zoom


Registration is closed

The Northwest Literary Translators welcome you to an online seminar about literary translators' favorite methods for editing their own work. From reading out loud to changing the color of the font, we all have strategies and tricks for forcing ourselves to see (and hear!) our text in a new light. But are there specific areas or types of text that present extra pitfalls when editing? Is there a perfect time of day for dealing with revisions? How many drafts is too many? Come to hear your colleagues' collected wisdom and share your best tips with us.

This event will be organized into two parts. Part 1 will be brief presentations by members who have a specific set of techniques to share or demonstrate. Part 2 will be devoted to discussion and brainstorming. To reserve an informal presentation slot, email Shelley.

Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants prior to the event.
