call for translations

Ren Powell in Norway asked me to post this on the blog:

The International Cities of Refuge Network has launched its new quarterly webzine at Icorn.
ICORN's work focuses on the importance of freedom of expression and our website has two functions
1) to encourage the establishment of new cities of refuge
2) to promote free speech through education and literary dialogue across cultures

Our first webzine issue features the work of award-winning novelist Chenjerai Hove, and the renowned philosopher Etienné Balibar.

We are inviting writers to submit essays on the subjects of
1) nationalism, identity, "the exile experience", patriotism and/or citizenship
2) cross-cultural literatures, translation, critical analysis of fiction and poetry with an eye on history or current events

We are also accepting submissions for our Babel Voices section: poetry, short stories or short creative non-fiction related to the focus of our zine. We are especially interested in work we can publish in two languages.

Please note that we have an international focus.

We are a not-for-profit organization and regret that we do not have funds to pay our contributors at this time. We hope that you will consider the electronic rights to your work as a donation for an important cause.

Please see our masthead for our submission guidelines.
If you would like more information about ICORN, our history, our Advisory Board etc. Please don't hesitate to contact Ren Powell, Co-editor:
