We have cast as wide a literary light on the world as we could. There is no singular ‘voice’ that these pieces form; instead we let the representative writing style be determined by what we encountered in a certain region, whether it be an epic from East Timor, queer literature from Greenland, postmodernism from Honduras, or black satire from Eritrea.

Along the way we discovered the developing literature of some countries and the robust yet undiscovered oeuvres of others. Obscurity, however, is subjective: we can confirm that there is no place on Earth that literature isn’t written.
