Pranger Lyrikbook

Slovenian Poetry in World Languages

Sample Translations in 19 languages – – – Slovenia: Guest of Honour 2023, Frankfurter Buchmesse (18 – 22 October 2023)

The Pranger Poetry Critisicm and Translation Festival encourages critics to reflect on poetic texts and promotes translation analysis of poetry.

The Pranger Lyrikbook within the Pranger lit. association residing in Slovenia is an independent international poetry translation network, helping poets find a new audience – and publishers, agents, event scouts to find new interesting voices as well. We don’t sell rights, we just connect you to the authors of a progressive and distiguished Slovene poetry, so that you can read, meet, invite them to readings, and eventually publish them.

Don’t hesitate to contact us: lyrikbook@pranger.si – + 386 31 258 116.

(Co-funded by the Slovenian Book Agency and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

Every year since 2006, the festival translates a selection of poems by nine Slovenian poets from poetry collections published the year before. Each year, a different target language is selected for the translation.

  • 113 Slovenian poets
  • 38 translators
  • 10 editors
  • 19 world languages
