Emerging Translator Mentoring Programme

A Birmingham Centre for Translation member, Jennifer Arnold, has been awarded a place on the coveted Emerging Translator Mentoring Programme.

Jennifer, PhD student and part-time lecturer at the University of Birmingham, won a place to work together with prize-winning translator Peter Bush as part of the Writers’ Centre Norwich Emerging Translators Mentoring Programme. The winners were announced at the British Library on Friday 30th September as part of International Translation Day. Writers’ Centre Norwich Programme Director Jonathan Morley said: “Across this year’s eight languages and 85 applications, judging was both a luxury and a torment in that we had to decide between an exceptional range of candidates. The winners’ project proposals and their samples of work-in-progress were, without exception, very strong indeed.”
