10:30 am to 11:45 am


Join Kenyon Review translation editors along with translators of both poetry and prose to showcase the journal’s latest publications in translation. The panel will include discussion on translation as creative writing and as authorship. We will look at what editors are seeking when choosing texts to publish and what translators do when submitting, as well as comment on the translation process and end with a brief reading of some of the accepted work.
