Sunday Submissions: Starting November 15, Electric Lit to Accept Newly Translated Stories

Beginning November 15th, and for two weeks, Electric Lit is accepting submissions of newly translated stories:

Electric Lit accepts translated stories during any submissions period. But, according to the website, from November 15th through 29th EL is “opening a special period of submissions for our weekly fiction magazine, Recommended Reading, exclusively for translated work.”

The guidelines:

  • “Translators can submit either a sample, or a fully translated story that has not been published in English before. For full stories, per our usual length parameters we will consider pieces between 1,500 and 10,000 words.
  • “In cover letters, submitters should detail who is the rights holder — themselves or the original author — as we will need to clear these for publication.
  • “Upon a story’s acceptance, we will pay $100 to the translator and $100 to the original author or rights holder.
  • “Note that we are looking for stories translated to English.”
