Hosted at Bard College, with a dispersed staff composed of distinguished writers, translators, and publishing professionals, Words Without Borders (WWB) seeks to address the current "dangerous imbalance" in publishing (about 50% of all books in translation worldwide are translated from English, but only about 6% are translated into English). Browse the Web site by issue -- July/August, September, and October 2003 are available -- or select literature geographically. Readers will find both fiction and non-fiction in the form of essays, poems, and excerpts from longer works. There are also book reviews, brief biographical information about authors, and a link to sign up to receive the journal via email.
