Translating poets alive New York, USA May 3rd 2012

An event that focuses on the creative gap and sheer excitement of translation from one language to another. We would love to attend. Poets read excerpts of their work together with their translators, 5 students from the MFA in Creative Writing in Spanish at NYU. This is the first event of its kind in the United States. With Yousef Komunyakaa, Charles Simic, Tracy K. Smith, and Anne Waldman, with their translators, MFA in Creative Writing in Spanish students Valerie Mejer, Claudira Mora, Edgardo Núñez Caballero, Florencia San Martín, and Kadiri Vaquer.

At the King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center, 53 Washington Sq. South (between Thompson and Sullivan), New York City at 4 p.m. Free and open to the public co-sponsored by New York University.

You may find yourself wanting to translate poetry or simply to write after this event.
