It is with great pleasure and excitement, that Victor and I are announcing bringing on our first editor to assist me with the press! Please welcome Erin L. McCoy!
One of our press goals is to have one book a year in translation that helps broaden our understanding and connections with Argentinian literature, history and culture. Erin is joining Entre Ríos as an acquisitions editor and will be looking for the right mix of Argentinian poetry in translation for our press.
Erin is a Seattle-based poet, scholar, book editor, and educator in Spanish and Latin American literature and creative writing. She is also an award-winning photojournalist. Her poem, “Futures,” was selected by Natalie Diaz to be published in Best New Poets 2017. Her work has also appeared in Bennington Review, Pleiades, DIAGRAM, Cimarron Review, CURA, and other publications.
Erin holds an MFA in Poetry and an MA in Hispanic Studies from the University of Washington. She has been the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship, a Critical Languages Scholarship, the University of Washington’s Grace Milliman Pollock Scholarship, and the Oakley Hall III Memorial Scholarship to attend the Community of Writers in Squaw Valley, California, among other awards. She is from Louisville, Kentucky.
While the majority of our projects get started through other means than submissions and queries, do know we are always interested in hearing from translators working with modern or contemporary Argentinian poetry or hybrid models, so do drop us line if that’s a focus of your poetic work.
