If you’re a fan of translated literature you probably know of Asymptote, a free online journal that brings the world’s literature to life (in English translation) four times a year with massive editions packed with fiction, poetry, drama, criticism, interviews, and original art. Our fundraising campaign needs your help!
We’ve published work from 93 countries and 65 languages. Our archives include original work by incredible writers, and many Nobel Prize-winners, such as Anne Carson, Can Xue, Laszlo Krasznahorkai, J.M. Coetzee, Lydia Davis, David Mitchell, and many many more. But we need your help! We’ve crossed the $22,000 mark but only have until MIDNIGHT TONIGHT to reach $25,000.
We’re giving away many exciting perks, from literary care packages to designer AsympTOTEs. But best of all, you get to support world literature with your tax deductible donation. Hurry—our campaign ends at MIDNIGHT! (If you’re wondering why I keep saying “our” — I’m Asymptote’s interviews editor!)
Also, our January issue drops tomorrow. The video above gives you a sneak peek, but here’s a summary:
Our 4th Anniversary issue stars our Danish Fiction feature, powerful writing from Afghanistan and Syria, Boyd Tonkin on Jenny Erpenbeck, Platonov translated by Robert Chandler, Wang Anyi translated by Howard Goldblatt, three-dimensional poetry from Iran, an interview with David Damrosch, and so! much! more!
Please share the link or better yet make any size donation you can. Thank you! (Our twitter handle is @asymptotejrnl btw!)
