The British Centre for Literary Translation is Britain’s leading centre for the development, promotion and support of literary translation and contemporary writing from around the world. Part of the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, BCLT was founded in 1989 by the late WG Sebald. He was Professor of European Literature at UEA and a German writer who opted to live in the UK and continue writing in German.
The aims of the British Centre for Literary Translation include the promotion of translation and translated literature, supporting professional literary translators at all stages of their career, sharing best practice and encouraging academic debate. As such, the BCLT is a valuable resource for anyone with a professional interest in literary translation. A number of interesting events are held throughout the year, including an annual Translation and Creative Writing Summer School.
