About Eulalia Books
Eulalia Books is an independent publisher of literary translations with a particular interest in contemporary poetry and hybrid-genre works. We publish ex-centric and ecstatic work that has never before appeared in English translation. We believe that poetry thrives outside the margins of privilege, and we love translators who work on the ground to find these books.
We select projects among solicited and submitted manuscripts, and we publish broadsides, chapbooks, and full-length collections. At the start, we will focus on contemporary Latin American writing.
Eulalia Books is affiliated with the undergraduate Literary Translation minor at Saint Vincent College and is staffed in part by faculty and students.

Student Interns & Volunteers
Students attending Saint Vincent College have the opportunity to intern with Eulalia Books. Interns aid the press in all aspects of operations from social media to event planning to grant writing. The press would be deeply hindered without their support, charisma, and hard work!
