Push for world literature

Christian Science Monitor report is here.

Of note:

The online magazine of international literature, Words Without Borders, was founded “to address a yawning gap in literary publishing,” says Alane Salierno Mason, founding editor. “We just weren’t hearing enough from voices around the world.” The e-zine is hosted by Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y.

Originally conceived as a resource for publishing professionals like Mr. Mason (a senior editor at W.W. Norton) to become exposed to international authors, www.wordswithoutborders.org has since evolved to serve a larger purpose: connecting the public directly to the hearts and minds of people beyond American shores.
