First Look Publishers

First Look Publishers

ALTA's mentees have the option to take part in our "First Look" program, which allows participating publishers to be the first to read excerpts of the translations mentees have worked on throughout their mentorship year, for possible publication. We are grateful to the editors of the following presses and journals, who support literary translation and emerging literary translators by reading our mentees' excerpts:


American Chordata

Anomalous Press

Denver Quarterly

Gulf Coast

The Literary Review

The Offing

The Southern Review

Two Lines Press

Words Without Borders

World Literature Today

To be added to this list and receive translation excerpts at the end of each mentorship program year, please contact Program Manager Kelsi Vanada at
