Call for Translations of Poetry from African Languages

Deadline: 16 May 2016

Modern Poetry in Translation is publishing a focus on translations of poetry from African languages this summer. The deadline for submissions for this issue is May 16th.

A few reminders: We only publish translations of poetry (and not original English-language poetry) and the translations must be previously unpublished. We welcome work from any age, but we have a preference for contemporary work.

You are welcome to send submissions of up to six poems. You must be able to obtain rights for the reproduction of these translations both in MPT and online on our site. We pay a fee to our contributors.
