ALCHEMY, a journal of translation published at UCSD, is currently accepting submissions. We are looking for student work that engages translation in both traditional and innovative ways.

Students may submit translated works of poetry, short fiction/non-fiction, as well as reviews of books in translation. We are also accepting cover art submissions.

To submit, you must currently be a student, so please include the name of the school or institution of higher learning you attend, as well as your program of study (if applicable). Also, please provide contact information for one teacher or faculty advisor who has agreed to assist you in preparing your translation for publication, as well as copies of the original texts with your translations.

Please limit submission to five pages of poetry or ten pages of prose.

We will assume that, by submitting to Alchemy, you have acquired permission from the original author or rights holder to publish the translation.

In addition, we are expanding our journal this year to include a section for young translators, students 18 years of age or younger. Translation tools especially geared toward teaching young translators are available on our site. Same submission criteria as above. Please include contact info for a teacher with whom you worked on the translation.

Send all submissions to: with the heading Poetry Submission, Fiction Submission, Non-Fiction Submission, Review, or Cover Art Submission.

Thank you, and we look forward to reading your work,

Alchemy Editorial Staff
