Sunday Submissions: Triple Canopy Seeking ‘Fictions of Nationalism’

Triple Canopy, a New York-based magazine of art and literature, recently announced a call for proposals. They’re looking for new works in translation to be included in an upcoming issue focused on “fictions of nationalism,” set to launch in the summer of 2020:

According to Triple Canopy’s Meredith Morran:

We’re seeking works of fiction in translation to be published online. Each commission recipient will receive: a $2,000 honorarium; eight to twelve months of artistic, editorial, and technical support; the possibility of using Triple Canopy’s Manhattan office and venue for an event devoted or related to the work; and archiving of the project by Triple Canopy in partnership with NYU’s Fales Library and Special Collections. 

From their submission form:

Triple Canopy is looking for translators with coherent proposals for projects that can be realized in one year or less. While we are open to ideas that can be evaluated in relation to completed works, we will prioritize proposals that are accompanied by samples of the translation in progress. We are, as ever, in search of work that makes innovative, persuasive use of its own form and medium. While past publication or experience is not a prerequisite, successful applicants will demonstrate fluency in the genres in which they are translating. We appreciate work that takes into account current discussions and debates but is not bound by them, work that is carefully crafted but not fixated on form. While there is no limit on the length of proposed projects, keep in mind that we rarely publish works that contain more than eight thousand words.

Proposals can be submitted for free online through December 9, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
