Sunday Submissions: ‘ELQ/Exile: The Literary Quarterly’

There aren’t many literature-focused magazines that pay $ and are interested in translations:

But the Canadian magazine ELQ/Exile: The Literary Quarterly is one of them.

According to their submissions page:

ELQ/Exile publishes literary and speculative fiction, poetry, nonfiction, translations, drama and art from across Canada and around the world. Each year (four issues) we present approximately sixty contributors, which includes progressive talent who have previously published with us, through to new talent redefining the boundaries of contemporary literature and art.

And specifically, as to translations:

Works in translation (fiction and poetry) include francophone authors into English, as well as international authors into English (most often translated by Canadians). Our long-standing tradition of supporting translation includes over 400 such works to date.

You, the translator, must be a Canadian citizen or resident. Also, you must use the postal system, submitting to:
