Archipelago Books awarded by CLMP!

We’re delighted to receive a capacity-building grant from the Community of Literary Magazines & Presses (CLMP) this year. An inaugural award, we’re honored to have been selected alongside forty-three other small presses and magazines.

Our capacity-building grant will help us establish an events series to bring more of our international writers and translators into public high schools, community colleges, cultural centers, and libraries. Over the course of two years, the CLMP award will allow young people, educators, and readers from all walks of life to converse with literary luminaries from Peru, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Iraq (Iraqi Kurdistan), and with translators working from Persian, Greek, Polish, Spanish, among other languages.

We’re excited for all that is ahead and can’t wait to get organizing events for our communities here in New York and beyond!
