Metamorphoses is the journal of the Five College Faculty Seminar on Literary Translation. Published in the spring and fall, the journal provides a forum for literary translation out of, and into, all languages, and for papers on the theory and practice of literary translation. Please see our Editorial Board page to learn about who we are.

Please see our Issues for a catalog of past issues and PDFs of selected texts. The Languages page categorizes all past contributions to the journal by original language, while our indexes alphabetize either by original text author or text translator.

The Spring 2024 is now accepting submissions. Please see our “Submit” tab for further information. We have a rolling acceptance policy.

The deadline for submissions for the Spring 2024 issue is November 15, 2023.
