Because words and ideas need smuggling.
Most are originals, some are translations.
I‘ve been smuggling for many years – for various Icelandic outlets – one of which is in English; The Reykjavík Grapevine.
A smuggler should always stay anonymous – but I’m the reckless type so here goes: the name is Ásgeir H Ingólfsson.
I‘m born in Iceland and live in the UK and the Czech Republic these days. I’ve worked as a freelance cultural journalist and I’m currently a Postgraduate student of Creative Writing at the University of Southampton.
I like to write about films, literature and other cultural stuff as well as travelling – and even sports and politics when the mood strikes me.
If you want to support my smuggling by getting me to write for your publication you can always e-mail me at asgeirhi (at) gmail.com.
If you’re a fellow smuggler feel free to smuggle those words on a fancy social media of your choice – and if you want to smuggle some words of your own here, let me know.
