Announced: Open Submission Period for BOA's Lannan Translations Selection Series

There will be an open submission period for the Lannan Translations Series from October 1-October 31, 2011. We ask that you read and follow the guidelines provided on our website before submitting: [Lannan Translations Series] The Lannan Foundation of Santa Fe, New Mexico annually funds two new collections of contemporary international poetry published by BOA Editions.  The funds support production costs and author and translator royalties. We think of Lannan as the quiet heroes of the contemporary literary scene for their support of poetry and the art of translation. They also house some of the best audio and video literary archives available on-line. Find out more about the Lannan Foundation here: http://www.lannan.org/ [caption id="attachment_1513" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Carsten René Nielsen"]Carsten René Nielsen[/caption] The most recent release from BOA's translation series is House Inspections by Carsten René Nielsen, translated from the Danish with an Introduction by David Keplinger. With a dozen poems previously published in the Paris Review, Carsten René Nielsen is already a familiar name to U.S. poetry readers. These dark prose poems - reminiscent of Charles Simic – map out a uniquely European territory with chilling, cinematic clarity.
