Saskia Vogel shortlisted for the 2021 Pen America Translation Prize.

We are thrilled to hear that SELTA member Saskia Vogel has been longlisted for the 2021 Pen America Translation Prize. The award, worth $3,000, is given to a book-length translation of prose from any language into English.

Saskia is included among the finalists for her translation of Jessica Schiefauer’s ‘Girls Lost’ published by Deep Vellum. The winner will be announced at a virtual Literary Awards Ceremony hosted by Pen on 8 April.

We’ll be crossing our fingers.

PS: it’s also great to see that Johannes Göransson features among the finalists for the Pen Award for Poetry in Translation for his translation of Helena Boberg’s ‘Sense Violence’.
