In 2008 the Swedish WritersÂ´ Union hosted more than 600 authors, translators and scholars from across the globe in the first ever WALTIC.
The issues that were raised in Stockholm need further talks and more collaboration. The challenges embedded in literacy, freedom of speech and authors rights have to be a constant preoccupation.
Digitalization is pushing new forms of writing and creativity. Our aim is to establish WALTIC as an arena where these changes can be discussed from a global perspective with the primary goal of achieving comparability between the different nations of the world.
We look forward to welcome you to Istanbul in September!
