Back by popular demand, it's the NOTIS Literary Translation Open Mic Night, the premier literary and social event of the summer! We'll hear poetry and prose in translation from our talented members. Come and cheer on your creative colleagues and enjoy The Bounty's beer, wine, and coffee bar.


Translators who want to read should submit their name, the title and author of the text they want to read from (in their own English translation), and a short description of the piece (genre, style, history and importance) by email to by June 18, 2018. From those applicants, we'll pick 8 names to read for exactly 5 minutes each. Selections will be made based on the following criteria:

  • Variety of sources languages, styles, and genres
  • Past attendance and involvement of the translator in NOTIS's Northwest Literary Translators in-person events and online discussions
  •  Recency of publications, awards, etc. for the piece being submitted
Missed the deadline? No problem! At the event, organizers will also select additional readers randomly as time allows, so even if your submission is not selected in that first group of 8, come prepared to read.
