Peter Kimani — Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference, Tampa, FL

With:

AWP PROGRAM: “Imagining Others: Writing Fiction in English about non-English Speaking Communities,” featuring Subramanian Shankar, Samrat Upadhyay, Peter Kimani (Dance of the Jakaranda), Stephanie Han, and David Odhiambo. How is the non-English speaking world represented in English-language novels? What does it mean to write dialogue, imagine thoughts, and in general create interiority and community in English when the characters being represented are not English speaking (at all or primarily)? This question—which may be thought of as one of translation or of writing from the margins of the English language—will be responded to by the five panelists broadly and with examples from their own work.

The panel will take place on the first floor in Rooms 3 & 4 in the Tampa Convention Center.
