Tomorrow, 30 September, the Romanian Cultural Institute in London will be hosting the launch of The Romanian Riveter, the first British literary magazine dedicated to Romanian literature, on Wednesday 30 September.
THE ROMANIAN RIVETER marks a première in the history of two cultures. Launched in September 2020 in two cities, in Timişoara on 24th September at the LitVest International Literature Festival, hosted by festival director and author, Tudor Crețu, and in London on 30th September at an event hosted by founder of the Riveter and the European Literature Network (ELNet), Rosie Goldsmith. It is the first time that a British literary magazine has been dedicated entirely to Romania. Poets, prose writers, dramatists, essayists, translators and publishers all feature in one magazine, which includes many famous names and many writers published in English for the first time. The Romanian Riveter magazine is the eighth in the series brought to you by the European Literature Network.
The event will include presentations, readings and discussions around the featured authors, with Rosie Goldsmith, Vesna Goldsworthy, Susan Curtis, and recorded contributions from authors Ana Blandiana, Matei Vișniec, Ioana Pârvulescu, Fiona Sampson, George Szirtes and Tudor Crețu.
Due to restrictions on the numbers of attendees, the event will be filmed and broadcasted online on Friday 2nd October.
