NTM 10-year Retrospective: 2013, The Beginning

Here is a look back at the time when NTM got started on the PCCC Writing Center blog in February 2013: a group of ghazals by Persian poet and mystic Hafez translated by the accomplished poet and academic Roger Sedarat. This was our 2nd post from February 2013, and one of our most popular ever, so we carried it through the archives when we moved to our current web site in 2014.

We’d love to hear what you think! Find us on twitter @TranslateMonth, share using #TranslationMonth, join our mailing list, submit a translation month event, or like our Facebook page. We hope you’ll join us and celebrate your favorite poems in translation throughout September.
