Join this virtual poem translation workshop and build a bridge between poetry in different cultures! Featuring Rodger Martin and his book For All the Tea in Zhongguo, there will be a brief reading on selected poems originally in Mandarin or English along with their translations, followed by a discussion on the process of translation of contemporary poems. Experienced or amateur translators or anyone simply interested in translated poems are all invited to have a taste of the excitement and hard work in the process of poetry translation.
