2018 BKKLIT Translation Prize for Poetry Winner

We’re delighted to be publishing Noh Anothai’s translation of Chiranan Pitpreecha’s poem ‘Firefly’, which won the 2018 BKKLIT Translation Prize for Poetry. Chiranan Pitpreecha was one of the most prominent student activists of the October 14th era and her experiences are documented in her 1989 SEA Write Award-winning collection The Leaf That Went Missing, which ‘Firefly’ is taken from. You can read ‘Firefly’ on issuu or on our website here.
