International Women’s Day 2022: A Selection of Women-Authored Poetry and Prose from ‘Words for War’ and ‘The White Chalk of Days’

This International Women’s Day, we’d like to not only elevate the experiences and voices of women, but also continue our spotlight on Ukraine and Ukrainian voices by pointing readers towards just a few of the women poets, translators, and authors whose work is found in The White Chalk of Days: The Contemporary Ukrainian Literature Series Anthology and Words for War: New Poems from Ukraine. Both books, unprecedented collections of post-Soviet Ukrainian literature in English translation originally published in 2017, are available to read for free online here and here.

An Interview with Mark Andryczyk, Editor of The White Chalk of Days

Academic Studies Press is delighted to present this interview—our first in a series—with Mark Andryczyk, editor of The White Chalk of Days: The Contemporary Ukrainian Literature Series Anthology

The White Chalk of Days presents translations of literary works by Ukrainian authors that imaginatively engage pivotal issues in today’s Ukraine and express its tribulations and jubilations. Featuring poetry, fiction, and essays by fifteen Ukrainian writers, the anthology offers English-language readers a wide array of the most beguiling literature written in Ukraine in the past fifty years.
