All translators, at any stage of their careers, are welcome to attend this new monthly Russian-to-English translation workshop; the only requirement is fluent English and a good reading knowledge of Russian. We encourage a truly collaborative approach to the workshops which is helpful and hopefully enjoyable.
The first part of each evening will be an open forum; participants can ask the group for help with any particular problems in their current work. This time, during the second part we will work together on a section of Teffi's Воспоминания , her witty, tragic and beautifully written memoir of her last journey across Russia and Ukraine, before emigrating.
The evenings are usually scheduled on the first Friday of every month except the following alternative dates for the respective months.
Friday 13th June.
Friday 18th July.
Friday 14th November.
There is no meeting in August.
