international literature festival berlin

The international literature festival berlin presented by Berliner Festspiele
05 to 15 September 2018

Experience literary diversity in the age of globalisation: this is where it’s possible. Arabic poets meet American short story writers, South Korean poets encounter their Russian colleagues, South African novelists rub shoulders with a new generation of Albanian writers.
Fascinating new discoveries stand up alongside recognised masters of world literature, the new emerges, and interconnections become visible when, in about 200 events, around 150 authors provide glimpses into new and traditional streams in world literature. Prose, poetry, conversations with authors and political discussions, children’s and youth literature, film adaptations of literature – the international literature festival berlin is a vital, polyglot forum, staged by and for literary enthusiasts.

The festival is organised by the Peter Weiss Foundation for Art and Politics under the patronage of the German UNESCO Commission. It is financed by the German Capital Culture Fund.
