Asymptote is an exciting new international journal dedicated to literary translation and bringing together in one place the best in contemporary writing. We are interested in encounters between languages and the consequences of these encounters. Though a translation may never fully replicate the original in effect (thus our name, “asymptote”: the dotted line on a graph that a mathematical function may tend towards but never reach), it is in itself an act of creation.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please do read our magazine to get a sense of what we are looking for.

For translators, please get all your permissions sorted out before you send in the work.

Super Arrow is a biannual online journal for experiments in writing and art. Our publication is designed for community and creative risk. The name of the journal is a partial english-to-english homophonic transliteration of "supererogatory," or, beyond what is required. We mean this, whatever that means to you.

Tips From the Editor: 

Read the issues archive (superarrow.org/Archive.html) to get a bead on our proclivities.

We look for writing that is surprisingly exceptional, not necessarily the in your face brilliance, but the kind of writing that surprises you with story and a clear focus and voice. We love new writers, adore established writers, and embrace the I've-Never-Done-This-Before writers. If you have a story, a poem, an essay, or something that you haven't quite classified yet, but you think it could stand up to being read, then please submit it. Our staff loves to read!

Tips From the Editor: 

Please do include your name, number, and e-mail; please do submit YOUR OWN ORIGINAL UNPUBLISHED WORK; please do keep your cover letter short and sweet. Please don't submit the same piece multiple times; please don't forget if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
