Those of you interested in literature and poetry in general, and in literary translation in particular, may be interested in the "Literature Across Frontiers" project.

Here's the link:

If you look under "activities" you can see that they have a translation skills development project and under "events" you will find a series of literature and poetry workshops being held all over the world.

Hope this is of interest to some of you.

Best wishes,

I posted this early this morning, but there's still been no reply. That's OK - each one to his/her ownicon_smile.gif

Since users are so fond of discussing money and prices though, I thought you may like this quote by Robert Graves:

"There's no money in poetry, but then there's no poetry in money, either"

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and don't work too hard earning moneyicon_wink.gif

Thank you for the link... Oct 3, 2009


Thank you for this link. I am supposed to get notices about postings to this forum, but I didn't get one for your two postings. I must need to check my notification settings!icon_frown.gif

I took a look at the site quickly, but will go back on to really read through everything it has to offer. It certainly sounds like something that is very interesting. I am sure that there are a lot of other colleagues interested in literature and poetry who could benefit from the site as well.

Thanks again for the info...from one literature & poetry lover to another!icon_wink.gif
Best regards,

Don't be discouraged Oct 3, 2009

I bookmarked the site, as probably others did too. One can't comment until one has taken the time to look into it. (Not as many people look at Proz over the weekend.)

(Robert Graves was right on this one, though!)

Thanks Niraja. This is a great site! Oct 3, 2009

Thank you very much for bringing it to our attention. I will be following it and passing the link along to friends.The Sealines project is particularly interesting, although I'm suprised that Barcelona is not part of the network. I would love to see more forums that were less about selling and more about thinking. Food for the soul!

Greetings from Zaragoza, Spain,

Jenni Lukac

I know, Susan, and I often don't respond to forum postings by others myself. My jibe was more at the heavy bias towards the "Business issues" and "Money matters" forums on this site, which are also very important, but can get a bit "sensationalist" at times.

Anyway, have a good day!

Best wishes,
