    “Teresa is an outstanding Spanish-English translator. She is adept at taking “company jargon” and translating it into culturally-accurate and lingo-centric language, easily understood by our target audiences. Teresa is skilled, knowledgeable and did a significant amount of research to give us the best translation possible. She performed her tasks on time, within our small budget

    Glimmer Train has been discovering and publishing emerging writers since 1990.These are the things Glimmer Train hopes to do:- Publish literary short stories that were emotionally significant. We knew that at its best, a story could add depth and breadth to real life, and those were the stories we wanted to print.- Present stories in a handsome physical publication that people would keep, giving the stories the long lives and future readings they deserved.- Keep a keen eye out for new voices, favoring pieces by emerging writers.- Permanently have a no-reading-fee category (our "standard" category) so no writer would be prevented from making submissions because of finances.- Pay writers well for stories we accepted for publication. (In a year's time now, we pay over $45,000 to writers, nearly a third of that to emerging writers.)Upcoming Very Short Fiction ContestWe invite you to submit your very short stories (maximum word count 3,000) within the next 21 days.Reading fee is $15 per story; please, no more than three submissions per contest.Open to all writers.
