2022 NEA Translation Fellowships Announced

It's my distinct honor and privilege to share that I've been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support my in-progress translation of Állex Leilla's Springtime in the Bones. This project was one of twenty-four chosen for a 2022 Translation Fellowship, and I'm immensely grateful for the opportunity, as well as the jury's affirmation, all for a book that I've found so meaningful personally. Read more about my project and those of my fellow grant winners. And to hear an excerpt from the winning proposal, you can revisit my reading from Springtime in the Bones, or my interview with Állex Leilla at last year's Sant Jordi Festival (the interview begins at 2:50:05 in the video).
