PEN America hopes to raise $5,500 on Kickstarter for a literary translation series called Passages. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.
Here’s more from the Kickstarter page: “Passages intends to answer that question, issue by issue, by exploring the literary and narrative trends of some of the world’s least translated territories. Each issue will be co-edited by local editors with knowledge of the most current and relevant arts movements to publish exciting new fiction, poetry, essays, graphic narratives, and new literary forms being developed.”
