BCLT Summer School Publishers Panel

July 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

How do publishers acquire titles to translate? What are their greatest challenges? What advice do they have for translators whether at the pitching stage, translation, editing, publicity, and beyond? What are their expectations of translators at each of these stages? This panel hopes to shed light on the decision processes editors go through when considering a title for translation, as well as to clarify what is the translator’s role when bringing the book into English.

Joining us we will be Dedalus Books (UK), Silvina Lopez Medin from Ugly Duckling Presse (USA), Dzekashu Macviban from Bakwa Books (Cameroon), and Kirsten Chapman from Pushkin Press (UK).

There will be a moderated panel followed by a Q&A from the live audience. Come ready with your questions! The panel will be led by Sawad Hussain, co-chair of the Translator’s Association (UK).

The event is free to attend and open to the public.
