Circumference is a biannual journal of poetry, translation and international culture. We believe translation is a vital part of public and artistic discourse. In print and online, we publish new translations of poetry, drama, and essays, particularly—but not exclusively—from contemporary authors. We’re interested in interviews and dialogues between artists and thinkers of all stripes, and in profiles and other projects that shed light on literary and artistic praxis around the world.
Circumference is a sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts (nyfa), a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization. Circumference is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
