Words Without Borders

Check out Words Without Borders, an online magazine featuring prose and poetry from around the world, which is celebrating its tenth year. The site also includes anthologies (such as The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry) and sample pages of graphic novels and nonfiction.

May's magazine is about North Korea. (Here's a link to The Poet Who Asked For Forgiveness from that issue.) April spotlighted Iraq; March was about Spain; February highlighted graphic novels; and in January, they featured Haiti.

Since Words Without Borders has been around for a decade, there's a lot to peruse. For instance, November 2012: Banned Chinese Writers; May 2011: Afghanistan; September 2010: Urdu Fiction from India; and January 2009: Writings by Indonesian Women. Let me know if you find any new favorites!
