Taiwan/Ireland Poetry Translation Competition
Closing date: 1st October 2024

Our Taiwan/Ireland Poetry Translation Competition is back and this year it is organised in partnership with our friends at the National Museum of Taiwan Literature (國立臺灣文學館)!

Each year, we invite people from around the world to enter our Taiwan/Ireland Poetry Translation Competition. In our competitions, we explore the range of languages and traditions found on the island of Taiwan, and discover how these can be linked to the poetry traditions of Ireland. This year's poem is 莎拉茅群訪談記事 [Notes on interviews with the Slamaw] by 黃璽 (Temu Suyan). It is written in Mandarin, but it speaks about the 莎拉茅 (Slamaw) people, who are part of the Atayal tribe from the Dajia River Basin. To hear Temu Suyan read his poem, please click here. To hear him speak about his inspiration for writing the poem, please click here.

Winning entries will be chosen by a panel of language and poetry experts. The winners will be invited to join us at an online event in December 2024, to discuss their translations of this poem.

The closing date for this competition is 1st October 2024.
