A Workshop for Immigrant & Refugee Poets

with

Carolina Ebeid

How do we open a creative space for undervalued and intangible heirlooms, and ephemera -- objects lost in migration, now only filed in memory?

Join us as Carolina Ebeid leads a craft discussion and generative workshop where we consider the question by engaging the work of multimedia writers and crafting poems that reach towards an answer framed in our own experiences and generational memories.

This workshop is free and open to the public. However, due to space constraints, RSVPs will be required for the workshop. Please follow the link below for more information.

A Workshop on Poetry in Translation

A Workshop on Poetry in Translation

with

Ming Di

Do you have to know the language in order to translate poems from it? Poetry existed long before there was any language. Poets are detectives when it comes to deciphering a poem. But even with Google Translator, we, as poets, need to listen to the internal voice after we've figured out or are given the literal meanings of words. But how do we shape the poem after we've got everything in our mind? A few short poems in Chinese with English transliteration will be used as translation exercises followed by discussions. An ancient writing script from southern China will be introduced through a short poem as group exercise at the end.

Join us as Ming Di leads a craft talk and generative workshop on translation. This workshop will be of immense interest to bilingual and multilingual poets, as well as poets who are interested in the art and the act of translation.

This workshop is free and open to the public. However, due to space constraints, RSVPs will be required for the workshop. Please follow the link below for more information.
