Summary in English:

NolitchX is a literary project that aims to make visible the works of immigrant language authors residing in the Nordic countries. NolitchX creates networks of contacts and collaborations, produces multilingual literary events and coordinates translations and publications to find alternative ways for immigrant language writers to work professionally and to meet the readership in the same geographical region where they live. NolitchX defends the right of every writer to use his or her mother tongue or whatever language he or she chooses to create literature in.
