Apply by our Early Admissions deadline of September 15 and, as our Welcome to the MFA gift, we will send a book published by our literary partners.
The Center for the Art of Translation champions literary translation. The Center’s publications, events, and educational programming enrich the library of vital literary works, nurture and promote the work of translators, build audiences for literature in translation, and honor the incredible linguistic and cultural diversity of our schools and our world. The Center’s cornerstone is the bi-annual journal Two Lines, which showcases outstanding literature in translation. Issue 25 features exceptional work by writers such as Kim Hyesoon, Emmanuel Moses, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Enrique Vila-Matas in translations from Don Mee Choi, Marilyn Hacker, Charlotte Mandell, and Margaret Jull Costa, among others.
Akashic Books is a Brooklyn-based independent company dedicated to publishing urban literary fiction and political nonfiction by authors who are either ignored by the mainstream, or who have no interest in working within the ever-consolidating ranks of the major corporate publishers. Akashic books in translation include works by Arnaldo Correa, Salar Abdoh, Wieslaw Mysliski and the much lauded global noir series.
