I don’t know whether to submit these poems to The Nation or to Two Lines. I am thinking Two Lines is a good place to send this author, although they want a longer set than what I was about to send off.
There are other journals: Latin American Literature Today, Modern Poetry in Translation, and more, but the first two are the ones I am drawn to now.

Simultaneous submissions unless they explicitly say no to that. This group of three to the Nation, then that group with perhaps two of those that are at Your Impossible Voice to Two Lines, and if there are any other good ones later on, another group elsewhere. That is the plan.
And then, when it is all rejected, but all worked on, a big packet to Latin American Literature Today. I will save the book energy for Moro. Et voilà.
…and, keeping a log, now:
11, 12, and 13 are at the Nation
17, 19, and 20 are at Your Impossible Voice
E’s very different version of #12 is coming out in that anthology … which is why my translation can’t go to the New Yorker (for them, the existence of any other translation means they do not consider yours)
A nice batch of five to go somewhere would be 11, 12, 13, 17 and 20
