Publisher’s Description: Since its founding in 2001, Aufgabe has published a range of established, young and emerging writers, with an emphasis on experimental and innovative poetry.

In addition to new American poetry, essays, reviews, and talks, each issue of Aufgabe features a guest edited section of poetry in translation. Aufgabe has featured translations and special sections edited by Norma Cole (Covers and contents of an array of French poetry mags), Rosmarie Waldrop (German poetry), Jen Hofer (Mexican poetry), Sawako Nakayasu (Japanese poetry), Guy Bennett and Jalal El-Hakmaoui (Moroccan poetry), Ray Bianchi (Brazilian poetry), Jennifer Scappettone (Italian poetry), Matvei Yankelevich (Russian poetry), Mark Tardi and Laura Moriarty (Polish poetry), Cole Swensen (French poetry), and Christian Nagler (Salvadoran poetry).

Aufgabe is committed to poetic interaction and dialogue not only within our small communities at home, but also, through the dynamic process of translation, across international boundaries.
