Alchemy is committed to publishing quality, contemporary translations of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction creative writing. We publish creative translations and adaptations. It is our belief that translation can teach us new things about writing and about language itself. Alchemy is based in the University of California, San Diego’s Literature and Linguistics departments and is edited and published by UCSD students.
Tips From the Editor
Please review our submission guidelines; we welcome translations by students of any level and by emerging translators fewer than five years out of school. Don't forget that we are interested in both traditional translations and experimental translations, including homophonic, homolinguistic, and other poetic forms. We love textual, visual, audio, and other formats, too.
