About the Venue
We begin with a reception at the Casa
Founded in 2017, the European School of Literary Translation is organised by four partners: British Centre for Literary Translation, Centre of Expertise for Literary Translation (Flanders / Netherlands), University of Rome Link Campus and Fondazione San Pellegrino, Italy. The ESLT implements the PETRA-E Framework for the Education and Training of Literary Translators (https://petra-education.eu).
Participants’ Feedback from Previous Years
"I enjoyed immensely the opportunity to interact closely with all participants in both formal and less formal settings." "I’ve benefited a lot from the experiences of my colleagues as well as the lecturers and mentors, and I’ve also found answers and solutions to many of the issues I had with teaching literary translation." "A brilliant integration of theory and practice"; "thought-provoking, insightful". "I left with a lot of new ideas, coming from my colleagues and from myself as well after their inspiration".

We intend to run ESLT 2020 in Rome next September as planned, but recognise that we may be prevented from doing so by the current Coronavirus crisis.

So please do continue to apply for this wonderful opportunity! Once you have applied if you find that you need to cancel, we fully understand and there will be no liability.
