Song Bridge Press

Song Bridge Press is devoted to publishing Spanish-language poetry and prose in translation, dating from the eighteenth century to the present. Our mission focuses on giving readers greater access to Spanish-language literature in English, while complementing existing presses and journals of contemporary poetry, world literature, and literary translation. We are committed to a collaborative translation process, and work closely with both writers and translators to ensure the artistic integrity of each book. Because of this commitment, our readers will enjoy our en face style for poetry texts, with facing Spanish and English, allowing readers to simultaneously experience the poetic language of the original and the translation. Organized in 2013, Song Bridge Press is proud to be part of a community of small, independent presses committed to nurturing the art of literary translation.

We pride ourselves on our collaborative editorial environment, and welcome the contributions of our authors and translators to the process. We accept submissions of previously unpublished books of Spanish-language poetry. Submissions must include both the original Spanish language version, as well as the English translation. When considering our press for submission, please recall that we are inclined to nurture emerging poets and translators.
