Literary translation

Exploring the artistic and social impact of literary translation is at the heart of the National Centre for Writing’s mission. We aim to support and create opportunities for emerging and established literary translators and encourage new readers for books in translation. In 2015, the National Centre for Writing (under Writers’ Centre Norwich) took over the public aspects of the British Centre for Literary Translation’s programme, with Arts Council support.
