Where possible, we feature the works we publish in the original language alongside the translations. When using Submittable please submit the translation and in the cover letter state what you know about the rights to the original piece. Also be prepared to provide bios and a short translator's note about the piece.
For fuller submission guidelines or to submit via email, please go to http://asymptotejournal.com/submit.php.

Variety is our bread-and-butter, so if you have something new you're itching to say, please send us a proposal. We'll get back to you with feedback within ten days: if we like what we see, we will let you know about a posting schedule shortly after that. Rolling deadline.
Canadian Poetry Feature
Our Fall 2016 issue will include our first Special Feature on Canadian Poetry! We are looking for poetry in translation from Canadian writers across the globe.
From Aboriginal writers to the newest citizens, we aim to showcase the linguistic diversity and multiculturalism that is so vital to Canada’s national character. We are open to work translated from any language—in addition to French, we particularly hope to highlight First Nations, Inuit, and Métis voices. Help us celebrate the range of language and perspective Canada by submitting your work!
The personal, political, sublime and quirky—everything is welcome. Snag our sight lines with up to 15 pages of single-spaced poetry. We hope to see work from every province, although submitted material (whether original or translated) should be at least partly accessible in English.
All submissions should be sent via Submittable or, only if this is not possible, via email to Assistant Editor K.T. Billey at email@example.com. Please make sure to read the general guidelines below before submitting work or contacting us with questions. Spread the word!
Deadline: August 1, 2016
For our Writers on Writers feature in every issue, we continue to invite, as always, essays (written in English, passionately, in less than 2500 words) about a relatively unknown author writing in a language other than English that deserves more attention from the English-speaking world. All other requirements apply. Rolling deadline.
