Hayden’s Ferry Review: Translations
January 31, 2024, 11:59 PM MST
We are waiving our submission fee for Black and Indigenous writers. Please submit your translation pieces here. If you have questions concerning this policy, please email us.
Translations submissions should be works translated into English from any other non-English language, and must include the original text along with the translated text.
Translators should secure rights to translate the work they are submitting.
Submit up to 6 poems/micro-fictions, or one essay/story.
Prose should be double-spaced. We do not have a strict word count, though we favor pieces under 17 pages, and rarely accept work that is over 20. Please do not submit pieces that are over 25 pages.
Please include your entire submission in one file, and be sure your name and contact information are included on the first page of the file.
All work should be uploaded through our submissions manager. Acceptable file formats include .doc, .docx, and .pdf.
Please send one submission per genre at a time, and wait for a response before you submit additional work.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome. If your work is accepted elsewhere, please notify the editors immediately by adding a message to your submission in Submittable.
Withdraw your submission using Submittable. If you are only withdrawing a section of your work (for example: 2/5 poems), add a message to your submission in Submittable.
We do not accept previously published material.
We do not consider book-length works. Submitters are strongly encouraged to read the journal before submitting. Sample work from current and past issues is available on our website.
Upon acceptance, we will request a translator’s note on your translation process (similar to an artist statement).
