Lyrikline

 

Lyrikline.org  is an international poetry website, which presently features 11000 poems from 1235 poets in 58 mother tongues, with 16343 translations into 79 different languages. All poems are available to read and to hear as audio files, read aloud by the poets themselves; where translations have been commissioned, they are available alongside the original compositions. There are 23 poets from Finland on the site, 180 poems by Finnish poets with 194 translations into other languages.

 

Lyrikline.org is administrated by the Haus für Poesie, and is maintained in cooperation with many international partners. Nuoren Voiman Liitto has represented Finland alongside the Finnish Reading Center since 2009. Today dozens of poems and translations from Finnish poets can already be found archived on the website, with new additions to be added soon.

 

NVL and the Finnish Reading Center together choose the poets to be featured, with whom they then negotiate agreements for the publication of their work. For more information regarding NVL's participation in Lyrikline.org, please contact Executive Director Laura Serkosalo (laura.serkosalo @ nuorenvoimanliitto.fi).
