Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Continental Literary Magazine is a quarterly English-language literary magazine launched by the Petőfi Cultural Agency. The magazine focuses on the literature of Central Europe with the aim of creating a platform for contemporary Hungarian and Central European fiction writers to stake out their place in the English-reading world and, in particular, the North American literary market. Alongside English translations of works by some of the most promising budding writers from Central Europe, the magazine will also include works by authors of fiction from the region who have already achieved world renown and established themselves as major writers in English translation. The English translations of works written in the languages of the region are done by a team of experienced translators who work in close collaboration with the authors. The magazine thus will help foster an engaging transatlantic discourse which will help Central Europe occupy a prominent place on the stage of contemporary world literature.
