Colloquy #9: Translators in Conversation

Event Info

Please join World at Poetry at Center for Book Arts, for the ninth installment of Colloquy: Translators in Conversation, on translating visual poetry, with readings and discussion from Mónica de la Torre, Michael Kasper, and Olivia Sears, and hosted and moderated by Colloquy curator C. Francis Fisher.

Colloquy is an event series presented by World Poetry in collaboration with Montez Press Radio and partnering venues which invites translators to engage with live audiences in an exploration of the art of translation.

World Poetry Books is a nonprofit press committed to publishing exceptional translations of poetry from a broad range of languages and traditions, bringing the work of modern masters, emerging voices, and pioneering innovators from around the world to English-language readers in affordable trade editions.

Montez Press Radio is an experimental broadcasting and performance platform. We were founded in 2018 with the goal of fostering greater experimentation and conversation between artists, writers, and thinkers through the medium of radio. This platform invites different corners of the art world to interact with each other in person and on air—a place where media finally meets flesh. We’re drawn to art that exists in the unexpected, the authenticity of sharing without a script, the sounds of ideas in the making, conversation that forgets there’s an audience. We also like books. All of our in-studio broadcasts are free and open to the public. Stop by when we’re live at 46 Canal Street #2 in NYC or look at the upcoming schedule to see if we’re off-site and broadcasting near you.
