Literature across Frontiers in Georgia

Most intriguing translation event in Georgia between the 9th – 14th September 2014.

Poets and translators from Georgia and the UK gather in Tbilisi for an intensive week of literary translation aiming to produce quality English translations of 6 Georgian poets: Rati Amaglobeli, Shota Iatashvili, Gaga Nakhutsvrishvili, Lela Samniashvili and Maya Sarishvili.  The work of the late poet and musician Irakli Charkviani will also be translated.

Thanks to Bill Herbert for bringing this and Literature across Frontiers, a European funded Welsh-based project which aims to develop intercultural dialogue through literature and translation and highlight lesser-translated literatures to our attention.
