EventName [Culture Day] ‘Translation : Poetry’, Meeting with Poet You Heekyoung
Period 2017-06-28 ~ 2017-06-28
Place Korea

     For Culture Day on June 28, the Literature Translation Institute of Korea (LTI Korea, President: Kim Seong-Kon, professor Emeritus at Seoul National University) held a ‘Meeting with a Writer’ event at CAFE PASTEL In Sinchon at 7:30 PM.

     The event took the form of bilingual poetry readings featuring the poet You Heekyoung and LTI Korea Translation Academy student translators Ulises Tindon Manzano, Álvaro Trigo Maldonado, and Shin Hyemin.

     The three translators translated You’s works into Spanish prior to the event. During the meeting, You gave readings in Korean and the translators in Spanish, one after the other.

     The meeting ended with a back-translation event where the Spanish translations of You’s poems were translated back into Korean, giving the audience a chance to approach and communicate with literature and translation in a unique new way.
