The European Literature Network’s principal mission is to help promote and champion European literature and translation in the UK, and across all the countries of Europe. We are a small dedicated group of passionate professionals with a massive following of great people who believe in networking, innovation, mutual support and European cultural collaboration.We meet in networking groups and run a popular networking website. We publish Riveting Reviews, The Riveter magazine and The Riveting Interviews (audio and video podcasts) which focus on European literature in translation. ELNet serves as both a physical and online support hub – you do the work and send us your ideas, news of your workshops, events, festivals, blogs, videos, poetry, prose and translations and then we promote them. ELNet is free, voluntary and independent. ELNet is open to anyone serious about promoting European Literature – publishers, agents, translators, festival directors, arts managers, journalists and writers. As we operate without funding, we are especially grateful for any donations.Our tailored workshops, events and festivals are available on request and with appropriate sponsorship.
"Thank you so much for the workshop, I found it really useful and thought the format - short, focused talks by several highly qualified people, each bringing a slightly different perspective - worked extremely well."
"I'd like to thank the organisers of the recent Riveting Reviews workshop. What an excellent crash course in how to write a professional review! Invaluable tips and insights from every single speaker."
"Thanks so much for a brilliant afternoon. I found it both encouraging and enlightening and feel quite inspired to keep writing as a result."
