|Submission Guidelines for Absinthe: New European Writing
We publish original translations into English of work by European writers; the writing may include poetry, novel excerpts, short stories, drama, essays, or interviews. We do not consider work that has been previously published in English translation in the U.S. No simultaneous submissions please.
We will consider up to 5 poems from a single contributor. We prefer prose submissions to be no longer than 6000 words but will consider longer works when accompanied by a short summary. Please provide a biographical summary of the author and enclose a copy of the original text when possible.
Translators are expected to obtain copyright permission for the work to be published in Absinthe: New European Writing. In addition, we attempt to include a photo for each author featured so we ask that translators provide assistance in securing an author photo. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to offer financial remuneration but are pleased to provide a copy of the journal to translators and authors.
We welcome electronic submissions, please save text as RTF (Rich Text Format) and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. When submitting by post please include a self-addressed stamped envelope for our reply and mail to:
