Words without Borders promotes cultural understanding through the translation, publication, and promotion of the finest international literature. Every month at wordswithoutborders.org we publish 10-15 new pieces of prose and poetry from around the world. We’ve curated five acclaimed anthologies, Literature from ‘The Axis of Evil’; Words Without Borders: The World through the Eyes of Writers; The Wall in My Head: Words and Images from the Fall of the Iron Curtain;, The Ecco Anthology of International Poetry; and Tablet & Pen: Literary Landscapes from the Modern Middle East. We connect international authors, both in-person and virtually, with high school students throughout the United States and are developing content and resources to help educators incorporate contemporary international literature into their classes.
