24th January – 2nd February, 2013

Kolkata, India

We return to India in 2013 for our first ever poetry translation workshop in Kolkata.  The workshop will bring together European poets Doris Kareva (Estonia) and Kathryn Gray (UK/Wales) with lndian poets writing in several languages: Sampurna Chattarji, Binayak Bandyopadhyay, Nilanjan Banerjee and Mamta Sagar. Led by Akshay Pathak it will include a performance at Kolkata Literary Meet.

This workshop was originally going to be held in Nepal but had to be rescheduled due to the political situation there. It follows on from our previous translation workshop in India in 2010 – Poetry Connections – which also brought together European and Indian poets. You can watch a short film by DW Gibson about that workshop below!
