Workshop: Susan Bernofsky on How To Be a Translator

Translating is hard, and surviving as a literary translator is arguably even harder. Acclaimed translator and PEN Translation Committee Chair Susan Bernofsky offers up some tips for navigating the rough waters of copyrights, permissions, publishing, getting paid, and then getting to do it all over again. Come prepared to brainstorm marketing strategies and solutions for common practical problems translators face. Participants are invited to submit questions/scenarios in advance for discussion during the workshop.

Workshop participants can email questions in advance of the workshop to info@pen.org with the subject line “Translation Workshop Question.”
