We've closed the window for translation submissions. Thank you!
Open call for submissions of contemporary poetry and fiction in translation!
See guidelines below:
From October 1st to November 15th, 2019 , please email up to 3 poems, or max 10 pages of fiction (multiple stories okay) translated into English in a single Word document to email@example.com. Include 'Translation Submission Fiction or Poem' plus your name in the email subject line. Do not attempt to submit through Submittable.com. Please include the original works as well - send these in a PDF if the language uses a non-Roman alphabet. Translation cannot be previously published elsewhere.
In your email please include a brief bio of the translator and the original author. Please ensure that you have secured translation rights from the original copyright holder prior to submitting. We will need to confirm that you have permission to translate and publish prior to publication in our journal.
We are interested in promoting global literary voices from the last 100 years, and are less likely to publish retranslations of classical/canonical literature unless they are radical and innovative in their translation process. We encourage submissions of experimental translations.
We will do our best to respond to your submission within three months. Please no queries before February 2020.
Accepted pieces will be published in issue No. 26 - spring 2020!
Fourteen Hills is open for submissions through June 1st, 2019.
All submissions must be sent through Submittable.
We accept the following unpublished unsolicited submissions:
1 to 3 poems (maximum 7 pages)
1 short story or novel excerpt (maximum 20 pages or 6000 words)
3 pieces of flash fiction (1000 words per piece)
1 piece of literary creative nonfiction (maximum 20 pages or 6000 words)
Up to 10 pages of experimental or cross-genre literature (including graphic stories and 10-minute plays)

All written submission files must be in .doc or .docx format (Microsoft Word or Open Office files)
Writers may submit once per submission period. The submission period runs from March 1 to June 1.
We charge a small service fee ($2) for submissions*. This administrative fee helps fund our online submission system and ensures that Fourteen Hills will continue as an outlet for exciting and diverse new work.
(*Submission fees are waived for current subscribers to Fourteen Hills. To support us as a subscriber, please visit our Subscriptions page.)
Once published in our journal, writers may submit again after two years.
Response times vary from four to nine months, depending on where your submission falls in the reading period.
If your submission is accepted for publication in the journal, you will receive two free copies of the journal issue that your work appears in and a discount on additional copies of the issue.
We accept simultaneous submissions; however, please be sure to notify us immediately via Submittable should you need to withdraw submissions due to publication elsewhere.
We do not accept hard copy submissions.
