“Our old family wallpaper and curtains,” says poet, translator, and WWB contributor Valzhyna Mort about some of her major influences. She recently spoke to PEN America about Andrej Tarkovsky films, opera, and why the Belarussian landscape will always be her tabula rasa.

On Guernica, writer and activist Sandra Cisneros discusses losing her mother, the East coast/West coast literary divide, the relationship between English and Spanish, and “composting” negative emotions into light. 

In a recent podcast, translator and WWB contributor Aron Aji talks about translating Bilge Karasu’s A Long Day’s Evening from Turkish, a book in which Karasu “[slows] down consciousness to see its workings.”
