Words Without Borders

Screenshot
Founded in 2003, the award-winning online magazine Words Without Borders (WWB) offers readers a terrific view into contemporary international literature. This resource aims to "open doors for readers of English around the world to the multiplicity of viewpoints, richness of experience, and literary perspective on world events offered by writers in other languages." WWB's monthly magazine publishes contemporary global fiction, non-fiction, and poetry translated into English, as well as reviews of newly translated works. Recent issue themes include WWB's tenth annual Queer issue (featuring new Korean Queer writing), explorations of identity from five Omani writers, new Swedish-language writing, and international graphic novels. Readers may also want to check out the magazine's Find & Search feature, which allows users to filter their entire catalog of articles by country, language, or keyword, among other fields. As of this write-up, WWB has published work by more than 2,200 authors, translated from 114 languages and representing 134 countries. In addition to WWB's magazine, their blog, WWB Daily, "offers commentary, interviews, and essays on timely topics related to translation and international literature."
