Notre Dame Master of Fine Arts grad student Alireza Taheri Araghi is Editor-in-Chief of a new collaborative international fiction and poetry in-translation project called, Paragraphiti.
From the Paragraphiti website:
“Paragraphiti is a website dedicated to publishing outstanding international fiction and poetry. The idea of creating Paragraphiti was conceived in 2010 and the website debuted in 2011. We seek to feature quality works of international fiction and poetry with the aim of bringing the best of contemporary world literature to an English-speaking audience.
We are presently able to offer free translations of the Persian works we choose to publish. In the future, we will be offering free translations from other languges as well.”
MSPS is cosponsoring some of this project throughout the upcoming academic year so please do check out the short stories and poetry being updated regularly this summer.
And for writers looking to have their international fiction and poetry writing translated and published, check out how to submit your work to Paragraphiti for consideration.
