Tripwire, a journal of poetics, is pleased to announce a new funding initiative for translation. Translation plays one of the most critical and vital roles in international literatures, but too often translators go unrecognized and unsupported, especially those focused on contemporary and experimental writing. It is frankly impossible to imagine avant-garde poetries in the English-speaking world developing beyond their parochialisms without the vigorous and expansive work of translators.
The Tripwire Microgrants for Translation are designed to provide support and recognition for translators of contemporary avant-garde and experimental writing. Donations will be awarded to translators for new translations published in forthcoming issues of Tripwire. Please donate what you can—even the smallest amount will add up.
