In this English-language drop-in, dual language participants will look at what it means to rebuild a piece of writing in another language. Capturing the music and magic of another author's words can feel impossible, but doing so can bring an entirely new perspective to our own writing. Through translating a piece of their choice, participants will learn to pay very close attention to word-choice and other craft elements, as well as be in tune with the spirit of what they're writing. This course is open to dual language writers across all languages and of all levels and experience.
