Latvian authors include the writer Ilze Jansone and the author of travel books Zane Eniņa.

Two writers from Canada are returning to the Writers’ and Translators’ House – the writer Deborah Willis and the writer, poet, and musician Kris Demeanor. They are accompanied by another two writers from Canada – the writer Diana Svennes-Smith and the poet Rhonda Colis.
