Who we are

Literature Across Frontiers is the European Platform for Literary Exchange and Translation based in Wales, United Kingdom. We work nationally and internationally, across Europe and beyond. We maintain ongoing partnerships with a number of national organisations, as well as cultural and literary NGOs and companies, and work in collaboration with other platforms and networks. Our work with focus on Wales is carried out in synergy with our sister organisation Wales Literature Exchange, the national agency for promotion of international literary exchange with Wales.

Literature Across Frontiers was established in 2001 with support from the Culture Programme of the European Union, and its development was supported with subsequent grants from the same programme and form the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, as well as from other sources, such as Arts Council England and the Arts Council of Wales. Our project Literary Europe Live was established in 2015 with co-funding form the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
