Announcing the 1st Annual


Students from all departments are invited to submit translations of texts from Latin, Ancient Greek, and Modern Greek.

We know that there are many people inspired by the beauty of these languages who wish to render them more freely and creatively than classwork often involves. This contest is intended to highlight the work of students who are interested in the process of translation as a creative, intellectually meaningful enterprise. We welcome students in Classics and other languages and literatures as well as creative writers and students interested in translating Greek and Latin into other media, such as music, the visual arts, screen arts, theater, dance, etc.

Faculty in all departments are encouraged to announce this contest to their classes. We invite graduate students to inform their own undergraduate language and writing classes about this contest, and to enter it themselves.There will be two categories of contestants: undergraduate students and graduate students. Prizes will be given in each category for the first, second, and third place winning entries of original translations from the languages of Greek or Latin of any era.
