It’s a new year, which means the judges for the 2013 Best Translated Book Award are about to start taking stock of the best of last year. If you published something in translation between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2012, you have until the end of January to put your book in the running for the award. For instructions on submitting, see the BTBA website, or click here for poetry and here for fiction submissions. Usually it’s the publishers who submit works for consideration (since having a book longlisted, shortlisted or in the winner’s circle can certainly boost sales) but f you happen to be a translator who works for a publisher who happens to be boycotting the award, feel free to submit your own work. Best of luck & hope to see you on the longlist!
