Scritture Giovani is a project conceptualized by Festivaletteratura in 2002 to promote young European writers.
It started with the support of the European Union’s Cultural Programme and has continued with increasing success. Scritture Giovani involves several of Europe’s major literary festivals – Festivaletteratura, Hay Festival (United Kingdom) and international literature festival berlin (Germany).
The authors in the past years were chosen under the criteria of age (under 32), the first publication of a short story written specifically for the project, the first translation of their work (into the languages of the three festivals: Italian, English and German) and the participation of the authors at events at the three festivals.
The short stories, information about the Scritture Giovani authors and other news will be published on the website: www.scritturegiovani.it.
The Scritture Giovani publications from the past years are listed up here.
