It was very exciting to participate in the poetry festival organized by the Macedonian National Association together with the Gothenburg City Library yesterday!
So embarrassing that I couldn’t read my poem without getting so moved, but it is a very emotional text for me.
Wonderful audience and colleagues, I am so proud and happy that I accepted this invitation!
I am surprised and moved that the Commission for the Sveriges Författarfond (Swedish Writers’ Fund) has judged me worthy of an annual literature fund! My new novel “Klara” will be ready in both Italian and Swedish this autumn!
What a surprise! Who would have imagined that my new novel “Klara” would be selected by the jury of the writers’ guild Författarcentrum Väst to be among the donees of the fund allocated by the Region of Västra Götaland to writers in foreign languages? I am extremely thrilled that the accomplished translator Helena Monti is going to translate − from Italian to Swedish − some ten pages of “Klara” next year, which I will use to find a local publisher in Sweden!
