The AALITRA Review publishes a variety of high-quality material concerned with literary translation, and translations of literary texts from other languages into English with a critical introduction and commentary by the translator. It hopes to foster a community of literary translators and to be a forum for lively debate concerning issues related to the translation of literary texts. All submissions are subject to anonymous peer review.

We welcome submissions in the following areas:

  • scholarly articles on aspects of translation (both practical and theoretical)
  • interviews with established translators or Translation Studies scholars on aspects of their work
  • book reviews of major Translation Studies publications
  • book reviews of literary translations into English, or of Australian writing into other languages
  • original translations into English of literary texts (with a preference for poetry and prose) accompanied by a critical introduction and commentary by the translator

We ask contributors to become members of AALITRA for at least the year in which their piece is published.

We are currently considering submissions for the next issue, which will come out in April 2016. To be considered for this issue, submissions must be received by 4 January 2016.

Submissions, which must be prepared according to the Guidelines for Contributors, should be sent to Brigid Maher.
