We are delighted to announce that the 2019 Peirene Stevns Translation Prize has been awarded to Jessica Ockenden!
Jessica studied French and Italian Literature, graduating in 2018. This will be her first full length literary translation. We couldn’t be more excited to work with Jessica over the coming months on her first foray into Literary translation. We also can’t wait to read the finished book which will be published in 2020.

We would like to thank our judges Amanda Craig, Gesche Ipsen and Meike Ziervogel for their dedicated work and Martha Stevns for making this entire process possible.
