Poetry in Translation campaign will commission professional,
high-quality translations of Finnish poetry into other languages. But
the poems translated as part of the campaign won’t just loiter between
the covers of a book. We’re also going to print them on postcards and
publish them on the Lyriklines poetry website.
The languages featured in the campaign are English, Spanish,
Croatian, Polish, French, German, Danish, Czech and Russian. Works by 15
Finnish poets have been selected: Bo Carpelan, Anja Erämaja, Saima
Harmaja, Jukka Itkonen, Sanna Karlström, Susinukke Kosola, Kirsi Kunnas,
Arto Melleri, Mirkka Rekola, Henriikka Tavi, Olli-Pekka Tennilä, Tuomas
Timonen, Sirkka Turkka, Jukka Viikilä and Sinikka Vuola
Around 50 professional translators have signed up to the project.
