I submitted my manuscript of translations of Mario Benedetti’s poems and got accepted to the Bread Loaf Translators Conference this year. I am super excited, and cannot wait to be in Vermont this summer. In addition to the joy of being accepted, I was also honored with a Katharine Bakeless Nason scholarship.
Right now I am looking for new poetry to translate from either Spanish or French. I am particularly interested in translating poetry from unknown or lesser known South American poets who are suffering from Chavismo in Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador. If you know of any poets, please share their names/work with me.
