International Translation Day 2021

Honoured to have my poem ‘Something in the Water’ translated into Sorani in ‘My Body Is Not Yours’, an e-anthology of translated poetry launched by Manchester and Slemani Cities of Literature.
It’s a real honour to be with so many inspiring writers linking Manchester & Slemani!

“International Translation Day (30th September) sees the publication of an e-anthology of poetry in translation from two cities: Manchester in Northern England and Slemani in the Kurdistan province in Northern Iraq.
“The more we see others, the more clearly we can see ourselves and that’s what the impossible act of translation offers us: a glimpse out of our language, land, and moment, a way to see a wider world, a way to help our own world hold more, a way to see ourselves grow.”
– Alana Marie Levinson-LaBrosse, Kashkul, American University in Slemani

Since March 2020, a team of translators supported by academics and the offices of Manchester and Slemani UNESCO Cities of Literature have been busy translating historical and contemporary poetry from English into Kurdish Sorani and vice versa. For the vast majority of the poets included, this anthology marks the first time they have been translated into Kurdish or English.”
