In this transnational era, literary translation pushes further the shared questions of our countries. 

Because a key feature of poetry is that it can create a consciousness for how language itself works, the translation of poetry is not merely a transferring of meaning but something essential to understanding the nature of our being and our being together.

In its second year, A-festival 2017’s theme concentrates on translational and transnational issues in various contexts of expression: personal, experimental, feminine, (in)visible, and national. 

Due to the constraints of cultural, social, and political frames, there are authors who take shelter in translation for survival and rebirth, there are authors who are limited in, cut off from, or blatantly denied a readership in their home language. 

For such cases, translation is vital to one’s livelihood directly, and by extension, a growing consciousness among the communities whose voices they touch.
