Transference is published by faculty in the Department of World Languages and Literatures at Western Michigan University. Focusing exclusively on poetic translation, the journal publishes translations from Arabic, Chinese, French and Old French, German, Classical Greek, Latin, and Japanese into English. We feature translations and accompanying commentaries on the art and process of translating poetry. To purchase a print copy of the journal ($10), please contact us.
Our 2020 issue, which includes a broad range of poems and commentary on the theme of vision/seeing, is featured below.
We are currently on hiatus and not accepting submissions. Please check back for an update in September 2022.
