Sunday Submissions: ‘World Literature Today’ Translation Prize

The World Literature Today Translation Prize — a contest aimed at translation-studies students — is open until January 1, 2018:

Those interested are asked to submit a prose work “up to 1,000 words” or up to three poems. “Each piece must be accompanied by a professional cover letter,” which must “include the name of a sponsoring faculty member from the translation studies program.”

The judges will be the editors of World Literature Today magazine, and the winners — in both prose and poetry categories — will each take $200. The two winning submissions are set to be announced in May 2018, and published online in the summer of 2018.

There is, unfortunately, an entry fee of $10.

Those who ware interested can put in their submission via Submittable. There’s also more information on the prize at the WLT website.
