Issue #4 Posted!

Check it out! An interesting1 problem arose when preparing for this issue. One author submitted a set of response poems to Neruda’s The Book of Questions. I wanted to publish the Question and its Answer side by side, but found the translation I had been reading was only recently copyrighted. I thought I could translate it myself2, but Neruda published The Book of Questions in 1974 in the United States, which means his family and heirs retain control of the copyright for that work until 2069. American copyright law at work for you authors out there, folks. Get out there and publish!

1To nerds.
2To my AP Spanish teacher’s great dismay, my spoken Spanish is to my written Spanish as a five-year-old’s speech is to that of a high school graduate.

Issue #4 going up tonight!

Please check back later today to see which wonderful authors are being showcased this month.
