In terms of contributions to Section 1 of Issue 10, I hope that you will enjoy the powerful poetry of Rose Ausländer, Jean Boase-Beier, Charles Bernstein, Carmen Bugan, James Byrne, Siobhan Harvey, Kapka Kassabova, Velimir Khlebnikov, Ernst Meister, Hom Paribag, Mario Petrucci, Clare Pollard, Jim Stewart and Anthony Vivis; and the lucid and magisterial prose of Amy Bloom, Carmen Bugan (who has also contributed poetry), Neil Charleton, Ronald Christ, Martin Goodman, Beatriz Hausner, Zhimin Li, Lina Meruane, Bina Shah and Yasir Shah.
Furthermore the project, “Volta: A Multilingual Anthology” continues to gather pace, the poem Volta by Richard Berengarten, dedicated to the memory of the Greek poet, George Seferis, having now been translated into 82 languages, with new renditions by Saule Abdrakhman-kyzy Batay, Mèlissa Chiasson, Sabine Huynh, Hiên-Minh Lê, Michael O' Leary, Vera V. Radojević, Basant Rungta and Dev Virahsawmy.
And, last but not least, all of these texts have been complemented perfectly by the forceful and highly original artwork of John Hoyland RA, Guest Artist for this issue of Interlitq.
I very much hope you will enjoy Section 1 of Issue 10 of The International Literary Quarterly, and that you will return to these pages in early April to feast on more than 40 contributions from authors who are either Glaswegian or have strong Glasgow connections.
News relating to the Glasgow Voices feature, and all other aspects of The International Literary Quarterly, will be published on a daily basis in the Interlitq blog.
Till soon and with my warm wishes to you meanwhile, wherever you may be in the world.
