Jake Schneider is a writer, translator, and New Jersey native. After studying creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College, in 2012 he received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship—the youngest recipient to date—to translate poetry by Ron Winkler, and has lived in Berlin ever since. His translations have appeared in over a dozen journals including CircumferenceWashington Square, the Massachusetts Review, the Boston Review, and the Chicago Review, alongside more exotic cameos at a Carnegie Hall concert, several literary magic shows, and the current Venice Art Biennale. In February 2015 he hosted “Untranslatable: Exploring the Boundaries of Translation,” a reading and concert featuring nine translators' original renditions of allegedly untranslatable texts.
