Literary festivals and events

Literature Across Frontiers develops international content at several literary festivals, bookfairs and venues all over the world.

As well as contributing to individual events we have also developed literary festivals in partnership with our platform members. These include the Malta Mediterranean Literature Festival, developed with Inizjamed, which takes place in September every year and includes a translation workshop running prior to the multi-arts events and the  Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival – the first international literary festival in Turkey – developed with Kalem Culture.

In our events we aim to bring the voices of poets, authors and translators from around Europe and the Mediterranean to new audiences and to raise awareness of lesser-known literatures and issues related to their translation and publishing. Visit our events page to find out the latest.
