Sarah Death shortlisted for 2020 Warwick Prize for Women in Translation
Sarah Death has been shortlisted for the Warwick Prize.
We are delighted by the news that SELTA member Sarah Death has been shortlisted for the 2020 Warwick Prize for Women in Translation for her translation of Tove Jansson’s ‘Letters from Tove’ (edited by Boel Westin & Helen Svensson, published by Sort of Books).
Sarah’s translation is one of seven titles to make it to the shortlist. The £1000 prize was established by the University of Warwick in 2017 to address the gender imbalance in translated literature and to increase the number of international women’s voices accessible by a British and Irish readership. In 2020 the prize is generously supported by the British Centre for Literary Translation and the British Comparative Literature Association.
The winner will be announced in an online award ceremony on Thursday 26 November. Best of luck to Sarah!
