The Poetry Translation Centre’s mission is to give the best poems from Africa, Asia and Latin America a new life in the English language; to better understand and celebrate the diverse communities who have made their home in the UK; and to enrich the English poetic tradition through translation.
We produce new translations through collaborative workshops and innovative poet-pairings. We introduce extraordinary international poets to new audiences, live and online. We foster collaborations between poets from very different poetic traditions. And we forge enduring relations with immigrant communities in the UK for whom poetry is of great importance.
