Sea of Words 2010

Lack of funding prevented the organizers (the European Institute of the Mediterranean, coordinator of the Spanish network of the Anna Lindh Foundation for Dialogue between Cultures) from publishing the winning stories for this year. However, MET working groups produced finished English versions of the first- and second-prize winners in 2010:
  • Milena Is a Sex Bomb” by Alfredo Zucchi, Italy, first prize

    MET holds the copyright (2011) for this new translation of the author’s original on behalf of members of the working group:  Kelly Dickeson, Mary Fons i Fleming, Paula James, Fiona Kelso, Mary Ellen Kerans, Ailish Maher, Barnaby Noone, Aisha Prigann, Irwin Temkin, Lucy Vázquez, Stephen Waller. The author collaborated in the translation process.
  • Sunset” by Ayelet Gundar, Israel, second prize

    A MET working group (Mary Fons i Fleming, Mary Ellen Kerans, Ailish Maher, Irwin Temkin, Stephen Waller) produced a light edit of translator Esther Hecht’s work, in close contact with the translator and the author.
