She is Assistant Editor of Treasury of Lives in New York and is also an editor for the Tibetan Political Review and English Editor of the Tibet Web Digest. She has a BA in English from Harvard and will receive the MFA in fiction and literary Translation from Columbia University.
Kimi Traube is a writer and translator living in New York City. Her translations have been featured in Bomb Magazine, and her short prose has appeared in the Catch & Release section of the Columbia Literary Journal. She is completing her MFA in Fiction and Literary Translation at Columbia this year. Her translation of Juan Villoro’s The Guilty is forthcoming from George Braziller Press.

She has been awarded a 2014 translation fellowship from the Yiddish Book Center for her translation of S. An-ski’s novel Pioneers. She has published in numerous magazines and her translation of I. L.
