In light of our decision to postpone the Contest Winners' showcase until the Summer issue to allow for the timely publication of our Special Feature on Literature from Banned Countries in the spring, we will continue accepting contest submissions until April 1. However, to be fair to the contestants who submitted on time—and also to generate some funds for this new Special Feature on banned writers—we will be raising the contest fee from $15 to $20.
Submit 10 to 25 pages of double-spaced fiction in translation followed by the original work. Remember that all text must be formatted in a standard 12-point font and that your submission should be saved as a single Word Document under the file name [GENRE—Original Language—last name of translated poet/author].doc or [GENRE—Original Language—last name of translated poet/author].docx (e.g. POETRY—Korean—KIM.docx). The document should begin with three lines containing only the following information: the title of the translated work, the poet/author of the original work, and the language from which the work has been translated. Please DO NOT include the name(s) of the translator(s) anywhere in this Word document (e.g. in the header or footer).
