The Poetry Translation Centre

The Poetry Translation Centre was founded in 2004 by the poet Sarah Maguire to introduce extraordinary poetry from around the world to new audiences, live and online. Our mission is to give the best poems from Africa, Asia and Latin America a new life in the English language, to better recognise and celebrate the diverse communities who have made their home in the UK, and to enrich the English poetic tradition through translation. We produce new translations through public workshops which are open to all and free to unwaged and refugee participants. PTC commissions fresh translations for publication by pairing international poets with leading UK poets and bridge-translators. They organise poetry tours around the country, and we forge enduring relations with immigrant communities in the UK for whom poetry is of great importance.
