>As many of you know The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign 
>Assets Control recently declared that American publishers cannot edit 
>works authored in nations under trade embargoes which include Iran, Iraq, 
>Sudan, Libya and Cuba. As the editors of CIRCUMFERENCE, a journal of 
>poetry in translation founded on principles of free and open exchange, we 
>want to respond to this issue in the most direct way that we can. We would 
>like to dedicate a substantial section of our next issue to poetry from 
>these countries. We are firm in our belief that not only do we have the 
>right to do this, but that translators working from the languages of these 
>countries are providing an incomparable and necessary service to audiences 
>in this country. Cross-cultural exchange through poetry and translation is 
>a force to be reckoned with.

>We are writing in the hope that you will assist us in this effort in any 
>way you can: by helping us to gather work for the issue, by recommending 
>translators working on the poetry of these languages, by sending us your 
>own translations, and by spreading the word about this project.
>
>The issue is projected to go to press in early summer. We will collect 
>translations through mid-April. CIRCUMFERENCE publishes all poems in the 
>original language alongside the English translation, so please ask 
>translators to send the original along as well. For more information about 
>CIRCUMFERENCE, visit our website

>Thanks so much for your support and for any suggestions you might have.

>Circumference is devoted to presenting translations of new work being 
>written around the globe, new visions of classical poems, and translations 
>of foreign language poets of the past who have fallen under the radar of 
>American readers.
>We are especially excited to show translation as the vibrant, necessary 
>interaction that it is. A biannual publication will print all poems in the 
>original language side-by-side with their English translations. Our first 
>issue will be on the stands in Autumn, 2003.
