Watch the recorded presentation of the live webinar held on 25 May 2022.


This webinar is presented by Dr Francesca Benocci from Victoria University. She talks to us about the world of literary translation and gives useful insights on how to approach this specific field of translation.

Among the many types of translation, literary translation is among the most coveted and the hardest to break into and succeed at. But what makes translation "literary"?

Francesca Benocci, who has extensive experience in this field and has translated New Zealand poet Janet Frame, among others, is a regular contributor to the US-based Journal of Italian Translation. She talks us through some of the most common questions about this topic.

  • How do we get started in literary translation?
  • How can we approach publishers or authors?
  • How can we get a translation accepted for publishing?
  • And what about the money?

These and other aspects of working as a literary translator are covered in the presentation which is followed by a Q&A session and complete with an essential bibliography for the literary translator.
