CFP: Submissions for a special Slavic & East European issue of The International Poetry Review

Deadline: March 15, 2014

The International Poetry Review is accepting submissions for its winter 2013 issue: a special issue on translations of contemporary (post-1950) Slavic and East European poetry, to appear spring 2014, guest-edited by Kathleen MacFie and Sarah Krive. Contemporary translation is the Review’s primary focus, appearing in bilingual format, along with a limited section, in every issue, of poetry originally written in English. We look for translations from the work of contemporary poets, without adhering rigidly to any one school of translation theory. We do request that the translator be responsible for securing translation and publication rights as necessary.

For this special issue, only work received by March 15, 2014 will be considered for publication. We prefer submissions of 3-5 poems, but individual poem submissions are acceptable. Please provide the original Slavic-language text as well as the translation. We require fonts compatible with Microsoft Word for the Macintosh. Translations should not have appeared anywhere else, including self-published chapbooks or on Internet sites. Individuals will be informed of decisions to publish on a rolling basis through March.

We prefer to receive submissions via email, preferably as Word attachments, which should be sent to both guest editors: kathleen_macfie@uncg.edu, sakrive@uncg.edu.
