US & THEM began with a group of translator/writer/poets who met at the Bread Loaf Translators' Conference in June 2015. This reading will feature New England poets presenting their original work (US) and work they have translated (THEM). The reading will explore the effects of translation on ones own writing and how the translator has the ability to write in the voice of another poet while maintaining their own voice when working on original pieces. As many translators today are themselves writers/poets, it is important to showcase both sides of the "writing self" in one space as the passion for words comes from a single source: a love of language.
