Popescu Prize for Poetry in Translation
Two books of Galician poetry in English translation are among the 73 titles translated into English from twenty-five European languages nominated for the 2011 Popescu Prize.
The two Galician titles are: I Am Not from Here by María do Cebreiro, translated by Helena Miguélez-Carballeira (published by Shearsman Books in 2010) and the Collected Poems of Lois Pereiro, translated by Jonathan Dunne (published by Small Stations Press in 2011).
The Popescu Prize is awarded every two years and is administered by the UK Poetry Society and funded by the Ratiu Foundation. The winner of this year's prize, whose judges are Jane Draycott and Sasha Dugdale, will be announced in November.
