The Olive Writers is proud to announce a new initiative: the Tower Translation Program.

The Tower Translation Program, set to begin in early 2019, will publish an e-book anthology of short stories by established Arabophone Moroccan writers in English translation.

Selected participants will attend a virtual translation seminar designed to introduce basic  translation techniques. Following the seminar, participants will complete a translation of a chosen text, which will be workshopped in-person by fellow Tower Translation Program participants prior to publication as an e-book.

This project aims to:

  • Introduce Moroccan literature to English-speaking readers.
  • Create a high-quality anthology for use in schools by English-language learners.
  • Enhance participants' knowledge of both English and Arabic.
