2018 AALITRA Translation Prize

I am very excited to officially announce that I have been awarded the Highly Commended Prize in the Prose category of this year’s AALITRA Translation Awards for my translation of Sapardi Djoko Damono’s short story “Surat” (“The Letter”). Many thanks to the judges for their kind words, to AALITRA, GIRAMONDO, TEXT PUBLISHING, JEMBATAN POETRY SOCIETY, THE LIFTED BROW and Prof. BRIAN NELSON for the generous donation of prizes, and of course to Pak Sapardi Djoko Damono for writing such an evocative story. Congratulations also to the other prize winners. You will be able to read my translation and the other prize winning entries in the next edition of the AALITRA Review.
