Monica Carter of Salonica, the "virtual salon dedicated to promoting international literature," has put out a call for unpublished translations for a new digital literary journal, E.Lire.
Three Percent have updated the design of their site -- and also their translation database, with the first installment of news for 2009.
If you're in London, there's a chance to meet writers from the UK, India and beyond at the PEN Literary Café at the London Book Fair. Over in New York, you can catch writers from around the world at the PEN World Voices festival.
And a future translation... Maya Jaggi meets Yousef Ziedan and discusses the international impact of the IPAF.
