Two Thirds North 34

About

Two Thirds North is someplace that is not fully there. It is an orientation, somehow suggesting direction but vague enough for us to get lost. Just as Stockholm has been a city of refuge for a diversity of peoples and cultures crossing here at a node of creative focus, the annual Two Thirds North anthologies allow radians of new world literature in English and translation to cross and diverge. Here is a mixture of identities, nationalities and conditions of existence, neither fully one thing nor another, and many of us write out of that fractionality. Two Thirds North does not have a political or literary manifesto, but it does have a belief in the power of the story, the poem, and visual art to describe, illuminate and make real.
