Another writer who attended the 2010 Sozopol Fiction Seminar and then wrote a poem about it is Niki Boikov. In fact he wrote two, both of which are reproduced here in my translation. The second is dedicated to the important Australian writer Alex Miller, an inspiring member of this year’s faculty.
The contest is for publication of contemporary Bulgarian novel in English language.
All candidates should be Bulgarian citizens with at least one published novel. Each writer can apply with one translated excerpt from a novel.
