Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature (Russia)  launches the open call for the new international project The Only Question (Authors in Conversation).

Ulyanovsk offers writers, poets, playwrights, translators from UNESCO literary cities the opportunity to ask just one question to an author from any other literary city.

The initiative will help introduce and establish a dialogue between the authors from the cities of literature and will contribute to the development of possible collaborative writing projects. The project also aims at exchanging on the issues of authors from different countries today and enabling readers to discover new writers.

Questions and answers by the authors (in Russian and English) along with a short biography of each participant and links to their websites, publications will regularly appear on the Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature Website, other literary cities websites, and social media, etc. Writers’ dialogs will also be offered for publication on the project partners’ platforms (literary magazines, libraries, literary media, and mass media).

In spring 2022 an online brochure will be released with all the conversations, information about the participants, websites, publications links.
