María do Cebreiro’s first book published in English
Congratulations to the poet María do Cebreiro on the publication by Shearsman Books in Exeter of I Am Not from Here in Helena Miguélez-Carballeira’s translation.
This is only the fifth book by a contemporary Galician poet to be published in English, joining two titles by Chus Pato also published by Shearsman Books, one title by Miguel Anxo Murado and one by Manuel Rivas. There have also been several anthologies.
In 2008 María was the first Galician writer-in-residence at Bangor University, where Helena is lecturer in Spanish and director of the Centre for Galician Studies.
