Archived: Syntagma Square: a truly European novel : 8 novelists, 8 languages, 1 novel … and you ?

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 19, 2015

Syntagma Square


Syntagma Square is a political and litterary project : that is Europe, a culture made by people who want to cross the barriers. Syntagma Square is an original project, a new form of novel : on the web, you can read the entire novel and you can contribute to make it cross the language borders in translating it. DONATE to this project is contributing at the work of the 8 authors and give them copyright’s revenue, that they will use to continue this project and make it live in Europe. 


8 novelists have joined their hands and souls in writing a tale. In this, the characters come from all four corners of Europe as the writers: Ireland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Greece . For various reasons, they all find themselves in Athens in May 2011. As the Greek people furiously protest the forced measures of the European institutions in Syntagma Square, the characters’ paths cross to varying degrees, by chance, as their individual adventures unfold. The reader can unravel these various destinies, immersed in the stylistic and thematic diversity of the tales of these characters, whose simplicity makes them just like us. 


The text amounts to a kind of mosaic novel, and is as much a political as a literary project. It has been expressly translated into eight languages, to promote the act of translation and the respect of each of our languages. For the eight authors, it’s a question of trying to cross the barriers t

hat separate us, be these linguistic, cultural, political, national, literary or creative. It is also to affirm the existence 

of a transnational civil society that transcends any institution, and which is capable of taking action and coming into contact on its own terms. 


  • How it works ?

On the site, you can read the entire novel, freely. You can also collaborate, and join in this movement the authors of Syntagma Square. Each chapter of the novel is in a different language, so Syntagma Square needs the help of everyone to fulfill its goal : being read all over Europe. On the site, sign in and help us !
