In what was recognised as the first international literary translation workshop in Myanmar for nearly 50 years, the British Council, in collaboration with PEN Myanmar and the Writers Centre Norwich, conducted 5 days of bi-lingual training for participants seeking skills in literary translation.  Guiding the participants were award winning writers such as Alfred Birnbaum, Suzie Joinson and Alfie Sa’at.  5 of the graduates of this workshop were invited by the British Council to take on the translation of the English edition of the Hidden Words, Hidden Worlds anthology.
