“We thank you for your enthusiasm and very visible passion about European culture. You did a fantastic job.”
The European Literature Network was created with the mission of championing great writing from Europe in the UK – and doing it together. Open to writers, translators, publishers, agents, festival directors, arts managers and journalists, ELNet is a free, collaborative hub for sharing news, events, videos, blogs, poetry, prose, translations and reviews. Founded in 2010 by former BBC journalist Rosie (‘The Riveter’) Goldsmith, ELNet spreads the word about European literature and translation via its website, Riveter magazines, Riveting Interview series, #RivetingReviews, workshops, events and festivals, operating thanks to a dedicated core team and an extensive network of volunteers and supporters. ELNet is both an online and physical gathering place for sharing content and discussion, to encourage the promotion, professionalism and popularity of European literature in the UK.
