At this year's Poligon Literature Festival the organisers – in cooperation with TRADUKI, Alliance Culture Foundation, and the City of Mostar – presented for the third year running a diverse programme. The festival kicked off in Split on 20th September with a pre-festival event and ran till 25th September in Mostar.
The Kosovar writer and actor Shpëtim Selmani spent the whole month of August in the Albanian capital thanks to a residency fellowship within the TRADUKI funded Tirana in Between programme. There he jotted down his impressions of his stay in several new texts.
In August, the P.E.N. Centre of Bosnia and Herzegovina welcomed the author Maja Gal Štromar from Slovenia to the TRADUKI funded Writers in Residence programme. During her stay she did research in city's archives to find information on the death of her grandfather, who in 1941 was shot by the Gestapo in Sarajevo – an event that will serve as the foundation of her forthcoming novel.
