Beginning with a general overview of what a person needs in order to become a great literary translator, the workshop will proceed to the micro level, in which participants will work on a very short text in a multitude of languages.

Evan Fallenberg is author of the novels "Light Fell" and "When We Danced on Water" and a noted translator of modern Hebrew fiction, libretti, plays, and film.  He has won or been shortlisted for many prizes, including an American Library Association Award for fiction, the Edmund White Award for fiction, the PEN Translation Prize and the Times Literary Supplement Translation Award.  He is coordinator of fiction and literary translation at Bar-Ilan University of Israel and an instructor in the MFA program in creative writing at City University of Hong Kong. The recipient of fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and the National Endowment for the Arts, Fallenberg serves as an advisor to several literary prizes.
