RHINO Translation Initiative Call for Submissions
Details:
RHINO Translation Initiative - Call for Submissions
In the first year, RHINO is focusing on poetry from the Philippines and Malaysia

As part of our ongoing interest in international poetry, RHINO has begun a three-year effort to encourage submissions from poets around the Pacific, particularly those in language groups and/or from countries less frequently represented in North American poetry journals.

Each year of the initiative, we will target two or three countries for special outreach. In the first year, RHINO is focusing on poetry from the Philippines and Malaysia. Although the initiative is highlighting poetry-in-translation, poets from the Philippines and Malaysia are also welcome to submit original poetry in English. Of course, we will also continue to consider poetry-in-translation, as well as our usual English language submissions, by poets from all countries.

RHINO editors Angela Narciso Torres and YZ Chin will serve as special editors for outreach efforts to the Philippines and Malaysia, respectively.

Background:

RHINO is an award-winning, eclectic, independent, annual poetry journal in the US of more than 33 years' standing. Based in Evanston, Illinois (near Chicago), we publish poems, flash fiction/short-shorts (<1000 words), and poetry-in-translation from around the world that move, experiment, provoke, play, compel and/or sing. Our regular call for poetry, as well as the Founders' Contest submission period, is April 1 - October 1. RHINO receives 3000 – 5000 poems yearly. From those, 80-100 poets are selected annually. Process for Submission: Submissions must be sent between April 1-October 1, 2010. Please include a cover letter with the poet's contact information, as well as the 3 – 5 poems to be considered. If submitting poetry-in-translation, include the poem in its original language along with the English translation. Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Poets submitting from outside the continental US, may submit via email to: rhinopoetry@gmail.com with the subject header: Translation Initiative Submission. (For these electronic submissions, please consolidate your letter and poems into a single WORD document that you attach to your email.) Submissions sent from within the continental US must be in hard copy via the US mail and include an SASE. See mailing address below. The entire RHINO editorial staff will make all decisions about submissions on the basis of each poem's effectiveness in English. For additional information, check our website.
