New Voices for Europe Podcast Series (7)

We are asked to tell our ‘story’ not to write about what we want to say

Marcia Lynx Qualey in conversation with Ramy Al Asheq

The poet, editor and literary curator discusses the dynamics of the German cultural scene and the position of new arrivals who write in another language, and their need to be part of a community. His activities aim at bringing together Arab authors living in Germany with German writers of the same generation, creating spaces for exchange and mutual translation which broadens the scope and allows readers to expand one’s horizons beyond the widely translated few and the classics to discover new voices.
