The Chronicles

What does Crossing Border look like through a writer’s eyes? The Chronicles allows up-and-coming young authors to bloom into festival chroniclers. Their stories – from ordinary festival worries to glorious literary or musical discoveries and encounters – are published on the very same evening and translated by a group of translators, also young and up-and-coming. Through this programme, Crossing Border offers a stage to young people from all over the world with a talent for writing or translation. Previous chroniclers include Lize Spit (Belgium), Aura Xilonen (Mexico), Bregje Hofstede (Netherlands), Laia Jufresa (Mexico), Sam Byers (UK) and Yan Ge (China).
