Default Forma Review

I have just had one of my Rilke translations, "The Apple Orchard," published in The Forma Review, the online branch of The Forma Journal.

This is a new journal, and I don't really know much about it except that it publishes poetry in form, so I am not vouching for its content. Most of it cannot be read without paying for a subscription (at least for the print version; the online version seems to be accessible without that). I did have the experience that my submission was lost when the poetry editors changed, but when I inquired after not hearing anything for around six months, I got a prompt reply from editor Heidi White, explaining the situation, and within a week one of my translations was accepted for the online journal.

As usual, another wonderful translation, and I enjoyed your prose discussion of the metrical (& other) challenges, too. You did a great job sustaining that sentence!

I look forward to one day adding your Rilke to the space beside your Martial.
