The translator of the winning entry will win a £4,500 commission to translate the full novel – which will be published by Peirene Press in the UK and New Vessel Press in the US – as well as a six week translation retreat in the Pyrenees and mentorship from acclaimed translator Sophie Hughes.
Closing date for entries is March 18th 2021. Submissions will be judged anonymously and the winner will be announced in April. For full details, including eligibility criteria, please see our translation prize page.
