Call for Translation Submissions: the Brooklyn Rail

Call for Submissions

The Brooklyn Rail welcomes you to our new web-only section In Translation, where we feature unpublished translations of short fiction, excerpted longer fiction, and excerpted dramatic writing. Launched in April 2007, In Translation will serve as a venue for outstanding literary translation, and we hope that it will become a valuable resource for translators, authors, editors, and publishers seeking to collaborate.

Guidelines:

We seek exceptional unpublished English translations from all languages.

Fiction:
Manuscripts of no longer than 15 pages
(double-spaced)

Plays:
Manuscripts of no longer than 30 pages
(in left-justified script format)

* Translators must hold the necessary rights and permissions for the original work, unless it is in the public domain.

* Please append short (1-2 paragraph) biographies for both translator and original author.

* Translators who wish to have their contact information published with their bio should provide it.

* For excerpts, please also include a brief synopsis of the work as a whole.

Submissions should be e-mailed to intranslation@brooklynrail.org.
