Translation journal call for submissions

Call for Submissions
Translating in the 21st Century

TRANSLATION is a new Translation Studies journal at the University of California Santa Barbara published every two years by the Translation Studies Research Focus Group of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center at UCSB.

TRANSLATION is now accepting submissions of poetry or short fiction translations into English for its second issue, to be published in Fall 2007. Essays on literary translation are also welcome. Issue two will highlight translations addressing cultures around the world -- East and West. We are
particularly interested in translations from non-Western languages, but are happy to consider all submissions.

Only unpublished translations will be accepted. The journal is collaboratively run by graduate students and faculty, and welcomes translations from both new and established translators. Please email a brief bio of the translating author along with your submission to

All submissions should use current MLA formatting where required.

Poetry submissions should be limited to 3 per entrant. Poetry translations may be to or from English and should be submitted along with the original text for side-by-side publication.

For short fiction submissions, 7-10 pages is the preferred length.

Translators should obtain necessary permissions for translating texts and will be expected to assist in obtaining permission for publication of originals in the case of poetry.

Unfortunately, as a non-profit, scholarly journal, we cannot offer payment for submissions.

Submissions will be accepted through January 10, 2007 at

CSU, Sacramento holds an event each summer called the Writers Conference.

Each year we like to try new subject matter for lectures and workshop.
The question our advisory board would like to know from fellow writers and those who translate literature is:

Would you be inclined to attend a lecture and / or workshop on subject matter relating to translation of literature & writing?

If when you respond you are expressing interest, please include what topics would you be most interested in seeing if you were to attend a conference such as ours.

Thank you.
