Festival of the European Short Story

time: 26.5.2013. - 31.5.2013.
place: Zagreb, Croatia
The eleventh edition of the Festival of the European Short Story takes place from 26 to 31 May in several venues across the city of Zagreb. So far the Festival has been hosted in six Croatian cities. Fifteen anthologies of the European short story, with at least as many books written by the Festival’s guests, have been published and promoted at the Festival.

Within the Festival seven translation workshops in contemporary European literatures have been organized and in cooperation with international partners their winners have been awarded study visits to Poland, Italy, Ireland, Sweden and Spain.

FESS is a platform for promotion of other eminent European literary festivals, and it served as a role model for Olga Tokarczuk, a Polish writer, who founded sister International Story Festival in Wroclaw. Besides hosting foreign writers in Croatia, the Festival had the privilege of organizing a number of visits of Croatian writers to different countries in Europe. FESS works closely together with prominent organizations, initiatives and institutions throughout Europe.
