One In Twenty-Three: Nguyen Phan Que Mai's Translation Published in Hanoi Moi

Updated: Jul 15, 2020


Earlier in the year I received a message from the award-winning poet and translator, Nguyen Phan Que Mai . She had read the story that won the Bath Flash Award and been moved by it in ways that I can’t paraphrase because it’s a bit too raw. She wanted to translate it into Vietnamese and submit it to a major national newspaper, Hanoi Moi. Ad-hoc Fiction, the Bath Flash Award publishers, kindly gave permission and Hanoi Moi accepted it immediately. It was published on 27th May 2017. The commission from it has gone to a scholarship programme that helps children from poorer backgrounds in Vietnam continue in education. Que Mai talks about the publication in an interview for the Bath Flash Award, here.
