The Polish festival Station Literature takes place for the 22nd time, from 8 to 9 September in Stronie Śląskie and Sienna (with a pre-festival event on 7 September).
Organised by Biuro Literackie, the festival brings workshops, discussions, concerts, promotions and round tables. This year’s festival topic is Life, Love, Death, with a special emphasis on links between poetry and contemporary music.
It will present emerging Polish and European writers, fresh Polish translations of Bob Dylan and Patti Smith, publishers, editors and musicians. More than 30 writers are coming to Poland, among them internationally acclaimed Polish writer Olga Tokarczuk, Scottish writer and performer Ryan van Winkle, and four of ten Literary Europe Live’s New Voices from Europe: Bosnian writer and translator Asja Bakić, Belgian poet and performer Charlotte Van den Broeck, Welsh writer Llŷr Gwyn Lewis and Polish writer and multimedia artist Bronka Nowicka.
The festival also hosts European Culture Forum, a series of round tables with European publishers, editors and event organizers who will discuss new literary trends and developments.
The festival will also feature a film New Voices from Europe made by Bronka Nowicka and Wieńczysław Dębiński.
Station Literature is a part of our Literary Europe Live project and supported by Creative Europe.
