About the Thousand Languages Project

When we speak, we speak to everyone. 

The Piper Center’s Thousand Languages Project is aiming to become one of the biggest and most important literary translation projects in the country. It will build connections between peoples and across borders by translating stories, poems, essays, and other creative writing out of English and into the myriad languages of the world.

The core database will launch in 2019 as a living, ever-developing literary catalogue housed online and freely accessible to the public. Drawn from the thirty-year catalogue of Hayden’s Ferry Review, the award-winning international literary journal run by Creative Writing MFA students at Arizona State University, and featuring guest translators including graduate students and faculty working in ASU’s School of International Letters and Cultures, it will contain work by emerging and established writers alike, translated from their native English into the human voice in all its manifestations.
