This program presents the work of four talented younger writers who have been selected by faculty at the University of the Arts, Helsinki, and the Columbia University School of the Arts, New York, to represent the best of new writing in Swedish, Finnish, and English. In cooperation between these two arts institutions, the four Word for Word Writers have been engaged in a collaborative project of mutual translation, and will present excerpts from the resulting work here in a trilingual reading and discussion about international 21st century art-making with writers on the faculty of both institutions and guest translator Lola Rogers.
