Greek to English Literary Translation
Creative Contemporary Collaborative
Hello! My name is Eva and Translation Journeys is a platform where I showcase my love for the Greek language and culture.
My mission as a translator is to help reveal the talents and innovation of contemporary Greek writers and poets by translating and promoting their original work in English.
My work is not bound by its culture, it is free by its very own essence and purpose.
