Kalyna Review: Call for Submissions – Wednesday November 25, 2015

Kalyna Review, a celebration of language and translation, is seeking submissions for its Spring 2016 issue. They are looking for articles and creative work that explore how language creates the personal universe we each inhabit. They are also interested in marginalised and minority European languages, the languages of peoples who throughout most or all of their history had no state.

Specifically, they are seeking:

  • articles of 1,000 words exploring issues relating to translated literature;
  • poems of up to 100 lines which creatively use language to reinvent the world; and
  • flash fiction of 100–150 words

The review began as a poetry journal but aims to expand its scope and to act as a bridge between cultures.


No more than 3–5 poems per submission, but further submissions can be made, even if your first is not accepted.


Ideally, for online publications, pieces the equivalent of five A4 size pages are sought. However, the publishers are considering a future anthology of longer pieces. If you have any longer pieces of work you may therefore also include these in your email.


Translations are welcomed from anywhere in the world. The publishers would particularly like to see work from languages not usually translated into English. For written work, the work should be submitted in the original language and English.

The translation of your work may not be a "like for like" translation. The publishers would prefer to see poems that are interesting and well written English versions, rather than slavishly following the original.


Any photography/artwork should be submitted in JPEG format. If accepted, you will be contacted to supply a high resolution digital format if necessary.

General Guidelines

Send submissions by email only, with written work in the body of your email. Also include a covering letter with a short bio and, optionally, a photograph.
