Primary Editor/Contact Person
We have a very open submissions policy. It appears on the website as follows: We are a small press searching out fine translations into English of works first published in another tongue. Literature of the twentieth century is the crux of our concern, with cusps extending backward into the nineteenth, and forward into this one. Whatever falls within the compasses above will be considered. Attach as much material as you like to an email and relay to [email protected] Our interest will be in the work itself rather than past publication history.
