Denise Newman Workshop on May 17

Baboon-294We still have a few slots open for our translation workshop with Denise Newman, translator of Baboon by Naja Marie Aidt.

The workshop will be a three-hour intensive held at Two Lines Press’s offices, designed to improve your translation skills and to let you work directly on a particular translation.
