How Can We Pitch Books to Diversify Translated Literature?

August 19, 2021 via Zoom

A monthly series of knowledge-sharing open sessions for literary translators and appreciators of translated works from all backgrounds and experience levels.

Can translators be political in how they choose and pitch their work? Translators Anton Hur and Jeffrey Zuckerman discussed how literary translators can shape their practice according to one’s beliefs and desires for social change through case studies of how Bora Chung and Sang Young Park were discovered by the translator, pitched to publishers, and translated into English for the first time.
