Attention poetry translators: In just two shorts weeks, BOA will begin accepting submissions for its Lannan Translations Series, from May 1 - June 15. The Lannan Foundation of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is funding two new collections of contemporary international poetry published by BOA Editions in 2013. These funds support production costs and author and translator royalties. BOA Editions is grateful to the Lannan Foundation for its support of poetry and the art of translation. Interested in submitting? Click here to see the guidelines and our previously published translation titles. See also our newest translation Light and Heavy Things (officially on the market in June!) with selected poems by Pakistani poet Zeeshan Sahil, translated from the Urdu by Christopher Kennedy, Mi Ditmar, and Faisal Siddiqui. Publishers Weekly is calling the new collection a "moving and timely glimpse into contemporary Pakistani literature." Pre-order a copy from the BOA Bookstore today and get it within a week! Happy National Poetry Month! Through the end of April, purchase a book of poetry and we’ll “gift” a free book of poetry to the recipient of your choice! Click here for more details.
