Conversations Across Borders

“Earth, Poetry and Photographs.” Collaboration with Brazilian author, poet and translator Lucia Leao. Jordan Hartt coordinated a 2012 Conversations Across Borders Project that paired writers across the globe on a series of prompts, water, air, fire, and earth. January, 2013

Conversations Across Borders

“The Conversations Across Borders project came out of a desire to get writers talking across borders themselves, as opposed to “merely” sending money. What we do is pair writers together across borders (national, geographical, or cultural) to collaborate on a new piece of creative writing based on a given prompt. The work can be poetry, prose, or a hybrid form—or perhaps something else entirely. Currently, writers from Australia, Ghana, New Zealand, Singapore, the Philippines, Mexico, United Kingdom, India, and the United States are creating new work and having new conversations with one another,” Jordan Hartt said.
