Ukrainian Literature is a journal of translations. It publishes English translations of the finest works of Ukrainian literature. The first three issues of the journal were published by the Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA), 63 Fourth Avenue, New York, NY 10003, USA.

In September 2013 the Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA) abandoned the journal. Volume four was issued by the editor without financial sponsorship.

If you wish to donate to the Society, please use the donate button at the top of their website (which will open in a new browser tab) and then send an email to the Society ( that your donation is meant to support the journal.


The first two volumes of the journal were printed in paper copies that are held by the Shevchenko Scientific Society (USA) and are available for purchase from them.
