Submission & Rights

Submit Your Project to Cubanabooks

We will consider translations of literature (novels, short stories, poetry, drama, essays) written by Cuban women. At this time we prioritize the dissemination of works by living female writers who reside on the island. Only completed manuscripts not under review at any other press will be considered.

Potential authors should send electronically the following materials, which will form the basis for an initial review:

  • 2 page abstract describing the proposed book, including pertinent information about the author and copyright status of original language text
  • CV of the translator (or individual submitting the proposal) including all contact information
  • 5 pages of the original (or one full short story) along with the translation of the same material

If the editorial board gives a positive recommendation, then a full manuscript will be requested for further review.

Submissions and any other inquiries should be sent to :
