It’s time to submit for the 2016 Gulf Coast Translation Prize, which comes with a purse of $1000 and publication in the journal Gulf Coast, published out of the English Dept. at the University of Houston. The $18 reading fee gets you a year’s subscription to the journal, and this year’s judge will be Idra Novey.
Last year’s prize, which I didn’t see announced before now, was judged by Ammiel Alcalay and went to Samantha Schnee for The Romantic’s Conspiracy by Carmen Boullosa, with two honorable mentions (Rebeca Velasquez and Brad Fox) and two “commendations” (Jonathan Larson and J. Bret Maney). Congratulations!
This year’s application deadline is Aug. 31, 2016. More information on the Gulf Coast website.
