The reading of the Croatian writer Goran Ferčec in Klagenfurt on May 30, 2017, was the initial event of the literary program, jointly initiated by TRADUKI and BMEIA (Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs) within the Austrian cultural focus on Croatia in 2017.
On the occasion of Romania’s guest of honour participation at the Leipzig Book Fair, the Romanian Cultural Institute published two special calls for applications in order to boost the support of translations to German before the book fair. Until June 30, publishing houses can apply within the “Translation and Publication Support Programme” and the “Publishing Romania Programme“ with their own book projects.
In April, the Bosnian-Herzegovinian writer Mustafa Zvizdić traveled to Split, where he stayed for one month as a writer in residence within the TRADUKI-supported program Marko Marulić, which is organized by the association KURS from Split. Together with the writer from Split, Nada Topić, he presented his works to the Split audience in a discussion with the host Marijo Glavaš during a literary evening Disku(r)sija on May 12, 2017.
