News: publications and prizes

Blog, News, Poetry

I have an article, ‘Writing Oneself Home’, published here, which arose out of a panel discussion in which I participated in spring 2023.

I also have a chapter in Chris Brown and Graham Handscomb’s book, The Ideas-Informed Society: Why We Need It and How to Make It Happen, published by Emerald Publishing in September 2023. My chapter is called ‘A little conceptual housekeeping: ideas and their contexts’.

Poetry in translation

Blog, Poetry

I’ve recently finished a book of English translations of the renowned Portuguese poet and feminist activist Maria Teresa Horta: called Point of Honour, it’s published by Two Rivers Press.

During the project I was interviewed by Theo Kwek about the challenges and pleasures of translation.

Point of Honour was launched at a conference in Lisbon to celebrate Horta’s life and work – I wrote about the conference here.

I’m now beginning to translate the work of another Portuguese poet, Luís Quintais: a couple of translated poems appeared in Poetry Review a couple of years ago.
