Yoseba Peña wrote IXO (1987) during his Other Words residency in Dublin at the end of 2016. It corresponds to the first chapters of the third (and last) part of his novel IXO, due to come out in 2018. Diana Draper has translated it into English.
In May and June 2017, Bildts writer and editor-in-chief Gerard Marcel de Jong (1979, St.-Anne) stayed in Donostia, Basque Country, as part of the Other Words program. There he worked on his debut, the Bildts novella ‘Blau fan dagen, griis fan ônrust’ (‘Blue of days, grey of unrest’). His stay there resulted in an essay about the threats and opportunities for his own small language, Bildts. ‘Footsteps in the clay: towards a new awareness for the Bildts language’.
