Translation is what makes literature travel, particularly across a continent where more than two hundred languages are spoken and multilingualism is the norm. Award-winning authors Harkaitz Cano (Basque Country, Spain), Selja Ahava (Finland) and Caryl Lewis (Wales, UK) share their experience of writing for a small but dedicated readership and extending their audiences through translation.

Co-presented by Literature Across Frontiers in partnership with Singapore Writers Festival and with support from the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
