Now in its twelfth year, Magnesia Litera is a prestigious Czech literary prize presented annually for the best books published in the previous year. Besides the overall prize,  awards were presented  in eight literary categories (prose, poetry, translation, children’s literature, non-fiction, debut writing, publishing achievement and readers’ choice) at a ceremony broadcast live on national prime-time television on April 24, 2013.

The latest winner in the translation category is Věra Koubová, translator from German, for her brilliant Czech version of the poetry collection Traumsaum by Richard Pietrass. The Czech translation, Z lemu snu, was published by Revolver Revue in 2012.
