Frequently Asked Questions
Do you pay?
At this moment, we are still fighting to secure funding for Issue 2. We hope we will at least be in a position to in small part remunerate translators for their work.

Fall 2023—likely November.
When will I hear about my submission?
August 1, if not earlier.
What are your formatting requirements?
Formatting is of minor concern!
Do you accept simultaneous submissions?
Do you accept novel excerpts?
Yes! As long as they can be read as stand-alone pieces.
Do you accept translations of unpublished works?
Do we need to secure translation rights?
If accepted, we will ask that you share with us the permission to publish from the copyright holder. The journal will not request those rights on your behalf.
Do you accept self-translations?
We prefer submissions not translated by the author, but may consider self-translations in certain instances.

Not at this time.
Do you accept reprints?
Reprints will be considered if justified—i.e., if the piece is out of print or there is another barrier to its access. If the piece is accepted for publication, the translator will be asked to share proof of permission to publish from the copyright holder.
