Announcing Transversal: A New Literary Translation Collective Based in Philadelphia

We’d like to let you know about Transversal, a new literary translation collective that will begin meeting in Penn’s online spaces this fall. Transversal will be a gathering place and a resource for any and all literary translators in the Philadelphia area. Together, we will hold writing and submission work sessions to make the task of the translator a little less lonesome, host workshops to offer each other preliminary feedback and support, and invite guest speakers to share their thoughts and work with us.
The collective will be funded primarily by COML, but it will always be open to collaboration across institutions. Transversal’s first meeting will be on Friday, September 11, from noon to 1:00 PM ET. To register for the meeting, please use this Google form:
