Publishing new translations and daily writings on world literature and culture, the Asymptote
blog looks for voice, spontaneity, and topicality in its postings. We welcome regular and one-time contributors, and publish essays, dispatches from international literary events, interviews, weekly new translations, and book reviews. Our regular features include a children's
column by M. Lynx Qualey, Florian Duijsens's Pop around the world
which takes a fresh look at pop music and translation, and essays about publishing
literature in translation.
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
