Katrine Øgaard Jensen & Lawrence Schimel (with Nielsine Nielsen)
Why should a literary translator worry about networking — and how can they do it better? Award-winning translators Katrine Øgaard Jensen and Lawrence Schimel will discuss how to network and succeed as a literary translator. In 2018, Katrine received the National Translation Award in poetry for her rendition of Ursula Andkjær Olsen’s poetry collection Third-Millennium Heart. Lawrence is a published author and an established translator working between English and Spanish.
Event: Self-Promotion & Marketing

Iben Hendel Philipsen, Tam McTurk & Jennifer Croft (with Sharon E. Rhodes)
How can literary translators use social media and create a web presence to promote their work? Jennifer Croft, Tam McTurk, and Iben Hendel Philipsen have all made names for themselves in the world of translation. Iben is not only a bilingual Danish/English translator but is also the founder of IP Words and the activist press, Rebel With a Cause. Tam is both a literary translator and the owner of Citadel Translations, a company that coordinates academic and commercial translations from Danish, Norwegian and Swedish. Finally, Jennifer Croft—the translator of Olga Tokarczuk’s Flights, winner of the 2018 Man Booker International Prize, and an author in her own right — has lit a fire under the debate on acknowledging translators.
