‘Literature knows no frontiers…‘ PEN International Charter 1926

The importance of the art of translation is at the heart of the PEN charter, which champions the unhampered transmission of thought within each nation and between all nations; beyond national and linguistic borders and beyond conventional literary expectations. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to translate for PEN International.



I was born in Mexico City but lived in New York City for a long time. From 2012 to 2013, I was a Writing Fellow at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center. Before that, I lived in Rio de Janeiro and Italy. I taught yoga, worked in human rights, and illustrated children’s books. I currently live in Silicon Valley, where I write for the technology start-up Juntos Finanzas (www.ahorrandojuntos.com).
