Later this year, ArabLit will kick off our inaugural short-story contest:
What we’re looking for: Short-short stories, under 1500 words, translated from Arabic into English. Entrants will need to submit the story in English and the Arabic original, and demonstrate that they have translation rights to the story. A sentence of permission from the author will do.
There will be no fee for entries.
Judges: The inaugural judges are set to be author Maan Abu Taleb, literary translator Thoraya El Rayyes, and novelist Ruqaya Izzidien.
