›Limen‹, a multilingual journal of contemporary poetry,
has been celebrating new voices from Europe and beyond since 2012.
Unlike prose, contemporary poetry rarely crosses national borders or linguistic boundaries:
It's translated less often, and first editions are hard to find outside the country of origin.
›Limen‹ endeavors to change that, and to this end we print texts that haven't yet been
published in German-speaking countries, presenting them in their original
languages as well as in German. We also produce audio recordings of poetry to highlight
aspects of the author's intentions.
The journal is published by the Limen e.V. Society and is printed by Wehrhahn Verlag, Hannover.
