A similar poetry translation workshop, Literature Beyond Borders took place in Käsmu in 2004. The workshop brought together poets writing in languages between which there are often no translators, to translate each other’s work using a bridge language. The workshop was attended by poets writing in Catalan (Jaume Subirana), Hebrew (Amir Or), Icelandic (Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl), Slovak (Martin Solotruk), Slovenian (Gregor Podlogar) and Estonian (Maarja Kangro, Doris Kareva, Hasso Krull, Carolina Pihelgas, Tõnu Õnnepalu). Most of the poets are also distinguished translators. The poets were on stage in the Literary Tent of the Tallinn Literature Festival HeadRead on Thursday, May 6.
