Image is looking for previously unpublished translations of contemporary poetry, fiction, and nonfiction by living authors who engage substantially with the three western faith traditions. We’re open to translations from all languages and are particularly interested in work that represents Judaism, Islam, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East

We ask that translators secure the necessary permissions from original authors or their estates. The translation must be previously unpublished, including online; it's all right if the original has been published. 

For poetry, please send one to five poems. For fiction and essays, our typical length is 4,000 to 6,000 words but there's some flexibility. 

Image was founded in 1989 to demonstrate the continued vitality and diversity of contemporary art and literature that engage with the religious traditions of Western culture. Now one of the leading literary journals published in English, it is read all over the world—and forms the nexus of a warm and active community. Explore more at
