His second book, Dream-Mill (2001), received the State Prize for Poetry. To date, he has published eight collections. In 2011, more than 150 poems spanning fifteen years of Christodoulides’ work were translated into Bulgarian (Plamik: Sofia). In 2016, Affected Areas-Raw Tales was translated into French under the title Zones sinistrées (Paris: Le miel des anges) and, two years later, into Serbian as Izranjavane zone (Belgrade: Treći Trg). In 2018, he coedited, with fellow Cypriot poet Panagiotis Nicolaides, the Anthology of Cypriot Poetry 1960-2018 (Athens: Kyma). His work has been featured in international anthologies, literary journals and at poetry festivals across the world.
