Ós Pressan með smiðju í þýðingum

Ós Pressan verður með smiðju í þýðingum á Amtsbókasafninu miðvikudaginn 16. september kl. 16:30-18:00.
"This workshop will explore creative and collaborative approaches to translation. Participants will work together in pairs or small groups on short, interesting translation exercises intended to show how translation is a fun and accessible craft that is very much its own type of creative writing. Although the workshop will mostly be conducted in English and utilize Icelandic texts, no specific language skills are required and speakers of any language are welcomed to take part. This workshop welcomes teens and adults who interested in writing and translating—but no previous experience in either is necessary! Light food and refreshments will be served.
The Ós multilingual writing workshop series is funded by a grant from Menningarsjóð Akureyrar (The City of Akureyri's Culture Fund).
