Andreea Iulia Scridon is a Romanian-American writer and translator. Her translation of a series of short stories by Ion D. Sîrbu, a representative of subversive writing under the communist regime, is forthcoming in 2021 with ABPress, and her co-translations with Sorkin of the Romanian poet Traian T. Coșovei with Broken Sleep Books (Talgarreg, Wales). Scridon’s chapbook of her own poetry will also appear with Broken Sleep, as will a poetry book from MadHat Press in 2022. In 2021, Scridon won second place in a national poetry competition in Romania and thus will soon have a book published there as well.
