I won a translation contest!

I just won the 2018 translation contest from the Society of Classical Poets! The award was given to me for my translations of Homer's Iliad I.1-47 and Dante's Inferno I. In addition to the honor of winning the award, I also received a $100 check! Not too bad for a broke graduate student. Many thanks to SCP for putting on the award. Also, please check out the list of winners to see the winners of the other annual contests put on by the Society (original poetry, original prose, and high school poetry), including links to the winning poems. Congratulations to all of them!
