Winter '15 issue live, Spring '15 submissions open!

On this snow day in Iowa, we're proud to announce the publication of our Winter '15 issue, ESTRANGED, and the concurrent opening of Spring '15 submissions. Happy reading and translating!


In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Iowa Translation Workshop, the Exchanges editors are seeking translations of poetry, short or excerpted fiction, plays, and literary nonfiction for our Spring '15 issue. We also consider English-language reviews, interviews, and essays on translation and translation studies. The submission period runs through Sunday, March 15th.

Published biannually, literary translation journal Exchanges was founded in 1989 by poet and translator Daniel Weissbort, who envisioned it as a venue for collaborations between translation students and visiting writers from the university's International Writing Program. In the quarter-century since, the journal has grown to include translations from writers and translators across the country and the globe. Exchanges is run by current students of the Iowa Translation Workshop.
