You’ve landed on the page of writer, translator, and editor Eric M. B. Becker.

A little about me: I’m editor of the world literature journal Words without Borders. I’m also a PEN/Heim-winning translator from the Portuguese and freelance book editor. In 2016, I co-edited the anthology Glossolália: Women Writing Brazil, featuring twelve women writers from South America’s largest country. (You can take a peek at Lit Hub and Electric Literature.)  Among my forthcoming projects are short story collections by Mia Couto and Lygia Fagundes Telles. In 2016, I lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to translate Brazilian literature. I’ve since returned to New York City.
