Other Words Festival announced

The 6th Other Words poetry festival will take place October 10-12, 2008 in San Francisco and will draw poets from the U.S. and from European countries (Germany, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Ireland, France…) to a variety of local venues, co-sponsored by the San Francisco offices of several international consulates and cultural institutes along with local literary art organizations and universities.

The Other Words festival offers a rare opportunity to step out of the mono-lingual fixation, to experience some of the world’s extraordinary poetry in its original music, and encounter the crucial act of translation. The actual fact of multi-national diversity and other voices will be singularly present more than ever in San Francisco over the three days of the festival. Poets in the festival are internationally acclaimed and in several cases the poets will be reading their poetry in the US for the first time.
