Many translators are drawn to literary translation but see other specialisms as likelier to pay the bills. Marta Dziurosz explains how to secure appropriate remuneration for literary translation and ensure it is more than a labour of love. Drawing on experience, she shares valuable practical advice on how literary translation can become the mainstay of your work or a significant part of your portfolio.
The AGM will take place before the presentation which will then be followed by a networking and drinks reception.
