Translation Slam and other literary tidbits
I like the idea of a translation slam - see here for head-to-head, specially commissioned competing translations of Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan, Persian and English poems. Lots more goodies at the PEN translation site including an interesting email correspondence between the translators Anthea Bell and Doris Orgel.
For those of you with unpublished translations in the drawer, a new literary translation journal from Australia, the AALITRA Review, with a distinguished international editorial board, is accepting submissions. Unusually and pleasingly, submissions are published in both languages.
