Alice Menzies and Saskia Vogel have been longlisted for the 2021 Pen America Translation Prize.
We are thrilled to hear that two SELTA members, Alice Menzies and Saskia Vogel, have 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 on the longlist for her translation of Jessica Schiefauer’s ‘Girls Lost’ published by Deep Vellum, while Alice is featured for her translation of Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s ‘The Family Clause’.
The shortlists will be announced in February, with winners announced later in the spring.
This is excellent news and caps off a good year for SELTA members in a variety of prizes and awards. Well done!
