FEATURING

Annaliza Bakri adalah seorang pendidik dan penterjemah. Beliau percaya bahawa karya sastera boleh menjadi suara subliminal yang memupuk pemahaman, kesedaran dan kecelikan mendalam tentang masa lalu, masa kini dan masa depan. Seorang pejuang karya yang dihasilkan dalam bahasa kebangsaan Singapura, beliau amat percaya kepada kesaktian seni terjemahan, di mana warisan bersama dan keadaan saling bertemu mendukung perikemanusiaan. Terjemahan puisi Melayu beliau telah diterbitkan oleh jurnal Prairie Schooner yang bertempat di Amerika Syarikat dan juga terbitan Singapura Text in the City (Teks di Kota).
