LBF: What Can a Mentorship Do For You?
A discussion around the different forms of mentoring; what makes a successful mentorship; what are pitfalls; what is the impact, on translators and on the publishing industry more widely; what more is needed. We will look at examples including the Emerging Translators Mentoring Scheme run by the National Centre for Writing, the Emerging Translator Mentorships run by ALTA, and the Lithuanian Translation Fellowship run by the Lithuanian Culture Institute and the British Council.
Speakers: Duncan Large (chair), Julija Gulbinovič, Daniel Hahn, Mikael Johani and Jeremy Tiang.
