Founding editor and board chair of Words Without Borders Samantha Schnee discusses the history and development of the preeminent online publication devoted to literary translation since it was launched in 2003. Quenching a powerful intellectual thirst for world literature, WWB has been enormously beneficial for non-English speaking authors—thirty of whom were discovered by Anglophone editors through publication on the WWB website. The publication has also been a boon for both literary translators and, perhaps most importantly, readers not only in the US but around the world.

Samantha Schnee is a translator and the founding editor of Words Without Borders, established in 2003. At the Academy, she is working on a translation of “In Winter Lights,” the first novel by Berlin-based Basque writer Irati Elorrieta.
