Market Research and a Good Website
Not only is Carcanet a publisher that is interested in receiving translated poetry, but their website also has a lot of great resources, such as an audio library (poets reading their work), reviews, interviews, and “free poem of the day, a Poet on Poet of the week, and an author of the month services”.
Originally from Chicago, I lived in southern Sweden for nearly 5.5 years, and moved to southern Wales in September 2006. I completed a Ph.D. translation studies in June 2009 at Swansea University, with a dissertation on the translation of children's literature.
Now I live in Norwich, England, where I am a lecturer at the University of East Anglia, and I also work as a translator, writer, and editor.
