Helen Mintz

Helen Mintz is interested in the intersection between translation and personal writing, the dividing line between translation and invention. Vilna My Vilna: Stories by Abraham Karpinowitz, which Mintz translated from Yiddish, was published in 2016 by Syracuse University Press and garnered the 2016 J. I. Segal Award for Translation, the 2016 Canadian Jewish Literary Award for Yiddish, and Honorable Mention for the 2017 Sophie Brody Award for Achievement in Jewish Literature. Mintz was a 2014 Translation gal with the Yiddish Book Centre.
