Win a Sontag!
Not the fabulous wave of grey hair so distinctive that Saturday Night Live had a special "Sontag" wig just so (you canbuy your own clip-in "feminist hair wear" from Art Metropole), but the Susan Sontag Prize for Translation of $5000 (US). The 2009 competition has been announced, and excerpts from the 2008 winners are available on the website. It's open to anyone under the age of thirty, for a Spanish to English translation of their choosing.
