Two translators, Didem Uca and Jon Cho-Polizzi, independently completed an English translation of the same German poem by Keça Filankes and discuss their translations and the poem live with David Gramling o International Translation Day. A collaboration with the American Literary Translators Association.
In March 2021, in line with SAND 22’s theme – deconstruction/reconstruction – we invited our readers and friends to construct a poem entirely from words they found around them – digging for book titles, newspaper headlines, food labels, shopping lists, or anything else – and write a poem of 22 words or less using their findings.
Poets spend hours scrutinizing words on the page. For a change of scenery, SAND’s three-part virtual event series Poetic Vision (in April-May 2021) will peer outward through a poem’s glasses. How do poets view visual art, science, and film? How can we creatively channel other media in a text that speaks for itself?
