The Chronicles is a residency project for young international writers and translators. It is part of Crossing Border festival, taking place in the Netherlands in November.

Crossing Border is one of the leading international, interdisciplinary literature and music festivals in Europe – and pioneer of the concept. The festival hosts some of the finest names of the worlds of literature and music, and also makes a point of presenting and encouraging new talent. Other trademarks are the presentation of unique artistic collaborations and exclusive performances. With performances occurring simultaneously on several stages, it allows the audience to programme their own personal festival.

On the Crossing Border website you’ll find the complete line-up (besides The Chronicles) for this year’s festival. The website also features a highlights’ section and archive, in case you would like to see all the exciting authors and musicians Crossing Border has been host to so far (since 1993).
