Writer and translator Lydia Davis said about the perils of translating, “...often I can’t accept the fact that there isn’t a way to solve all the parts of a problem successfully, so I go over them again and again.” For her, the scarcely trodden space between languages was another dimension where the overlapping of cultures, lexicons, and ways of seeing opened up endless possibilities—and posed a nearly-impossible task.
Writing & Literature Fellow Justin Duyao has a conversation with PNCA's Low-Residency Creative Writing Faculty and Poet Asiya Wadud.
From January 3rd to January 9th, PNCA’s Low-Residency Creative Writing Program offers generative conversations, informal lectures, and readings that are open to the public, via Zoom and live streaming on Youtube.
