Joukje Akveld (b. 1974) is a writer, translator and journalist. She writes picture books and non-fiction for children and adults. Her work has been translated worldwide and has won two Zilveren Griffel awards (annual prize for the best children’s books in the Netherlands), two nominations for the prestigious Woutertje Pieterse Prize and two Vlag & Wimpel awards. She also translates picture books, and her writing as a journalist has regularly been featured in national publications such as Vrij Nederland, Trouw, Kidsweek and Het Parool.
Joukje asked me te recreate her Dutch website and translate it to English. She couldn’t get in touch with the admin of the Dutch website / server, so we decided to host the English website on a subdomain and point it to another server.
