Machado de Assis Magazine – Brazilian Literature in Translation is proud to launch its second edition, this time in a purely online edition available at www.machadodeassismagazine.bn.br and containing a selection of Brazilian prose and poetry for the consideration of the international publishing industry. We also considered texts in German for this edition as part of our preparation for Brazil’s participation in the next Frankfurt Book Fair, in October.
A PDF version of the full content of each edition is also available. Thus, in addition to being able to read the full content on tablets and computers, editors, agents and the general public can also download only the texts of interest to them.
This second edition received 50% more submissions than the first, which was launched at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair in the presence of foreign agents and editors. The increase in demand is a clear sign of growing confidence in the project on the part of Brazilian writers, which is a great honour to the Brazilian National Library Foundation.
Machado de Assis Magazine seeks to facilitate negotiations between
Brazilian writers, editors and agents, and the international publishing
industry. We at Machado de Assis Magazine feel it is important to
showcase a broad slice of our literary production, giving space to
writers from a variety of literary generations and geographical locations and working in different genres.
