Has your May been as busy as ours? Check out the news section of our monthly digest to find out what has been cooking @ ZiN (spoiler alert: mostly paper products!). And as far as authors from the Balkans are concerned the most important recent development is the first ever ZiN Awards for Poetry, Prose and Criticism. Although we'd very much like to include & reward poets, writers and critics from other languages, that would (at the moment) be far too ambitious. Nevertheless, we continue to look forward to new writing in any and all languages and hope to connect and intertwine them in many new translations - not unlike those we featured throughout the month of May.
