Literature as a European mother tongue: In our series “One is a CROWD”, we introduce you to authors from all over Europe who were involved in the CROWD Omnibus Reading Tour, taking place from May to July 2016, featuring 100 authors who traveled through 15 European countries. We asked them questions about text production, reception and mediation. In case you were wondering what a literary activist from Berlin looks like, meet Maria Cecilia Barbetta!

Living and Writing between Borders

The authors of the 6th week of the #crowlitbus OMNIBUS Reading Tour have traveled to Frankfurt on the Oder, a German town right next to the Polish border. They took walks through the town with three local authors which showed them their favourite spots in and arround the city, where they also exchanged some (literary) words. Not only German and Polish was spoken, but also Finnish, Slovenian and English. The short snippets feature Maik Altenburg, Sören Bollmann and Carmen Winter, guiding Harri Hertell, Artur Becker and Anja Golob through their Frankfurt(s).

Stay tuned for the whole movie, set to debut next week on the 4th of October!

#crowdlitbus Odyssey with Mira Tuci

As we close in to Friday and the closing event of our epic tour, let us reminisce a bit and slow down the flow of time. Look forwards in the next days for short and insightful journal entires, essays and thoughts by our #crowdlitbus authors on their journey from Istanbul to Athens! Albanian #crowdlitbus author Mira Tuci (you can read her One is a CROWD interview here) gave her mind over to the muses, and the #crowdlitbus crew was suddenly transported back to the times before ancient Greece, in the mist covered hills of the era of the myth…

Tell me, Muse, of the CROWD of many resources, which wandered far and wide, after sacking the North and Center of Europe. Many the people whose words they heard, whose ways they learned. Tell us of these things, beginning where you will, Goddess, Daughter of Zeus.
