Literature Across Frontiers’ work spans the following activities…
LAF provides opportunities for people working in the field of international literature to create new contacts.
Seminars, debates and conferences
We organise public debates, seminars and conferences at literature festivals, book fairs and other gatherings.
Information provision, research and documentation
LAF has access to a wide range of information useful for people in the literary world. We provide much of this online and at events, and also use it in our research which we undertake to make recommendations for policy-making and best practice.
Literary festivals and events
We help develop international content at literary festivals and literature events.
We participate in several international book fairs with events, networking activities and collective stands.
Translator training and development
LAF develops models for the recruitment and training of literary translators through translation workshops and tertiary education models for emerging translators.
LAF published Transcript, Europe’s trilingual online literary magazine, was published in French, German and English between 2002 and 2014. The last issues can be accessed in an archived section of this website here. The English version of older issues is available on a separate archive website.
