The Swiss List in partnership with Seagull Books is an effort to bring Swiss literature to readers around the world.

With the latest addition to the Swiss List published by Seagull Books, the number of books in English by Swiss writers now on the stands is twenty-seven.

The publication of the Swiss List in partnership with Seagull Books is an effort to bring Swiss literature to readers around the world. An extension of the initiative «Moving Words», the Swiss List has had demonstrable impact. Audiences across the globe now have access to Swiss Literature and literary translators from varying nationalities have had the opportunity to network and engage with Swiss writers. The number of translations of Swiss literature will continue to increase, with Seagull Books looking at publishing another few titles by year end. Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council supports translation.
