Yale Literary Translation Collective

The Yale Literary Translation Collective is an ongoing workshop for literary translators working from any language into English at Yale. Members of the Collective offer feedback, accountability, and support as well as advice and resources for editing, publishing, and pitching. During the 2021-22 academic year, the YLTS is working to build a core group that will serve as a support system for working literary translators at Yale. The Collective includes graduate and undergraduate students affiliated with Yale Translation Studies but warmly welcomes other working or emerging translators across departments and schools. Please contact to join.
