New prize for poetry translation announced

The Sarah Maguire Prize for Poetry in Translation has been established in the memory of Sarah Maguire (1957-2017), the founder of the Poetry Translation Centre and champion of international poetry.

The prize will be awarded every two years for the best book of poetry from a living poet from Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Middle East in English translation, published anywhere in the world. Winning poets and translators will divide a prize of £3,000.

The aim of the prize is to showcase the very best contemporary poetry from around the world, and to champion the art of poetry translation.

The prize is open for submissions until 31 January 2020.
