Sinéad Morrissey announced European Poet of Freedom 2020
The Irish author Sinéad Morrissey was honoured with the Gdansk City Literary Award of the European Poet of Freedom 2020 for her volume On Balance translated by Magda Heydel. The jury recognised the way the poet navigates between different cultures, her impressive knowledge of the world, and her ability to speak languages of various poetic forms, in which both her fascination with folk imagination and modern science resounds. The award ceremony will take place on 31st August in Gdańsk, followed by an open meeting with the winners - the poet and the translator - the next day.
