Words Without Borders and SLICE Literary present a Multilingual Most Exquisite Corpse! Four international writers, along with their translators, stitch together a story in multiple languages. Here’s how the game works: One person writes the first page of a story. We send the final line of that page to the next writer, who continues the story, and so on.

Participants include Silvana PaternostroAmir Ahmadi ArianGlaydah NamukasaSinan AntoonMerit Kabugo, Ibtisam AzemMary Ann Newman, and audience volunteers!

Hosted by SLICE Literary’s Marae Hart and WWB’s Jessie Chaffee.
