Translation Workshop with Margaret Jull Costa

Center for the Art of Translation | 582 Market Street, Suite 700 | San Francisco, CA

This event has already taken place.

We at the Center are honored to offer Bay Area translation-lovers a chance to learn from one of the very best. On August 12, we’ll be offering a workshop with Margaret Jull Costa.

In this one-time-only translation workshop you will learn from one of the legends of literary translation. Costa is the translator of Nobel laureate Jose Saramago, Javier Marias, Bernardo Atxaga, and many more.

During a rare visit to the United States Costa will lead a two-hour class on the translation of a piece of Spanish-language writing. Workshop participants will collectively work through a selection of Javier Marias’s work, and participate in in-depth group discussion about various strategies and craft considerations surrounding the art of translation. You will receive rare insight from one of translation’s most lauded figures.
