We are not presently accepting manuscript submissions.
We publish Latin American and Spanish poetry in translation, with a focus on innovative contemporary poetry, historical avant-garde, and social poetics. Submissions are made by translators. We encourage potential submitters to review our catalog and mission statement. We are especially interested in the work of authors for whom this will be the first publication in English in the 'United States.'
We accept submissions during open calls that include:
A brief cover letter on the translation, including information on original publication and translation rights, prior publications of excerpts, and how the volume fits with the Cardboard House Press catalog and mission.
The complete manuscript in translation along with the original. A standard, 12-point font and 1.5 spacing is preferred, in .doc, .docx, or PDF format. If the translation is in process, please submit at least 75% of the manuscript and a description of the timeline for completion.
A bio of the author and translator(s). There is no limit on the number of translators.
