Iain Galbraith has been awarded the Stephen Spender translation prize 2014 for his version of ‘Quince Jelly’ by German poet Jan Wagner. The poem featured in a Translation Masterclass as part of the Knowledge Exchange project Mediating Modern Poetry that took place in Oxford earlier this year with Wagner and Galbraith, and which all participants had a go at. A Masterclass indeed!
