We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Brazil-based literary journal Revista Pessoa. Through the partnership, Revista Pessoa will feature selected work from WWB translated into Portuguese, while our readers will be able to access articles from Revista Pessoa in English on WWB. The exchange will generate greater global visibility for Words Without Borders contributors in what has been one of the world’s fastest-growing editorial markets in recent years.
This is the first in a series of partnerships between WWB and high-caliber literary magazines around the world aimed at advancing a more global literary conversation. We look forward to sharing literature, commentary, interviews, and criticism from Brazil with our readers. Look for the first Revista Pessoa feature in September.
Revista Pessoa is a dynamic literary journal featuring the best of contemporary Brazilian writing. Directed by Brazilian journalist and editor Mirna Queiroz dos Santos, the magazine released an English-language anthology of Brazilian writing at the 2015 Boston Book Festival. Queiroz served as an advisor for WWB’s July 2016 issue, Brazil Beyond Rio.
