Circumference Books is a press for poetry in translation. Our books highlight the process of translation and how that work is rooted in collaboration. Each multi-lingual project will foreground original design solutions, making visual the relationships between languages, cultures, writers, and translators.

Circumference Books supports the creative and urgent work of bridging cultures and languages. Our projects spotlight non-national languages and foster cross-linguistic poetic exchange.

Announcing our first two books:

Camouflage by Lupe Gómez, translated from Galician by Erín Moure, and Tell Me, Kenyalang: The Selected Poems of Kulleh Grasi, translated by Pauline Fan from Malay and Iban.

Books will be on sale soon. Consider subscribing to Circumference Books for all our books plus surprises!

You can read a piece about us in the January/February 2019 issue of Poets & Writers magazine!
