For our Spring 2019 issue, MQR seeks submissions on the theme of Iran — its literature, culture, and history, particularly perspectives on the 1979 revolution written in Iran or in the Diaspora. The issue seeks to present a collective of voices and reflections by a generation born in the shadow of revolution. We especially encourage translations from Persian, Kurdish, Armenian, and Azeri languages spoken in Iran. Deadline: June 30, 2018
