At this year´s London Book Fair 2023, Nicole Witt has been invited to contribute to the panel “Evolution of the Translator”.

The panel will take place in the Literary Translation Centre on Wednesday 19th April 2023, from 11:05 until 11:50 am.

How has the role of the translator evolved over the last 20 years? This discussion, moderated by WWB’s Editorial Director Susan Harris, on the occasion of WWB’s 20th anniversary, will gather a translator, an agent, and a writer to discuss the ways translating has changed in the past two decades, and how it might continue to change over the next two decades.

Nicole Witt will be joined by Samantha Schnee (Founding Editor, Words Without Borders), Naveen Kishore (Seagull Books) and Anton Hur (Translator).
