Founded by the German author and coastal wanderer, W.G. Sebald (pictured above), the BCLT is based at the University of East Anglia in Norwich.
A summer school in Japanese-English translation, funded by The Nippon Foundation, was established three years ago. There really is no parallel UK opportunity for those interested in this profession to explore their potential.
All attendees work with a writer-in-residence and a workshop leader. In the case of the latter this course is fortunate to have the services of Michael Emmerich, a seasoned academic and popular translator of Japanese novels.
To wet any appetites out there - here are two videos from BCLT's You Tube channel, an interview with Michael and an overview of last year's summer school.
The program runs for a week in July this year, 22nd - 27th July, and registration begins on the 1st March. Follow this link for an application form.
