Deadline Nears for Translation Prize

Poetry translators: Try for a treat this Halloween by submitting to the Malinda A. Markham Translation Prize by October 31. The award of $2,000 and publication by Saturnalia Books is open to translators who identify as female (including those who are assigned-female-at-birth [AFAB] nonbinary, genderfluid, agender, and intersex) and who are translating the work of a woman poet (including those who are AFAB nonbinary, genderfluid, agender, and intersex).

Using only the online submission system, submit a manuscript of 48 to 120 pages with an entry fee of $25. Visit the website for complete guidelines.

Founded in 2002 to offer “an edgy alternative to traditional public narratives around poetry and visual art,” Saturnalia typically publishes five books a year by established and emerging poets. Chronicler of the “gurlesque” poetry movement with the 2010 publication of Gurlesque: The New Grrly, Grotesque, Burlesque Poetics, edited by Lara Glenum and Arielle Greenberg, the press is known for challenging the status quo. It has published Cortney Lamar Charleston’s Telepathologies (2017), Diamond Forde’s Mother Body (2019), Kayleb Rae Candrilli’s All the Gay Saints (2020), and other innovative poetry collections.
