Editorial Focus: 

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.
