So much fun to participate in PEN America’s Lit Crawl Brooklyn 2017, even if from afar! Words without Borders and Slice Literary teamed up to make a pretty special collaboration happen.
Writers Na Zhong, Lucrecia Zappi, Georgi Gospodinov and Claudia Salazar Jiménez were given the final line, translated into English, of the preceding author’s 200-word story segment, and were asked to continue the story in Chinese, Portuguese, Bulgarian and Spanish, respectively. The segments were translated by Na Zhong, Eric M. B. Becker, Angela Rodel and yours truly. These were stitched together to form the short story “World Going to Fall Apart?”
And then we all got to read it!
