Words Without Borders: The Online Magazine for International Literature

http://www.wordswithoutborders.org/

Publisher: Words Without Borders

Words Without Borders undertakes to promote international communication through
translation of the world's best writing--selected and translated by a distinguished
group of writers, translators, and publishing professionals--and publishing and
promoting these works (or excerpts) on the web. We also serve as an advocacy
organization for literature in translation, producing events that feature the
work of foreign writers and connecting these writers to universities and to print
and broadcast media.

Our ultimate aim is to introduce exciting international writing to the general
public--travelers, teachers, students, publishers, and a new generation of eclectic
readers--by presenting international literature not as a static, elite phenomenon,
but a portal through which to explore the world. In the richness of cultural information
we present, we hope to help foster a "globalization" of cultural engagement and exchange,
one that allows many voices in many languages to prosper.

Words Without Borders is a partner of PEN American Center and is hosted by Bard College
in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
