CONCEPT

In Search of Young Poets – Poems of Innocence

…Just to be on the first step
should make you happy and proud.
To have come this far is no small achievement:
what you have done is a glorious thing.
Even this first step
is a long way above the ordinary world.
Constantinos P Kavafy
translated by Edmund Keely / Philip Sherrard

First steps of poetic writings, undecided and reluctant, but also bold; youthful steps, steps that have not ‘stepped’ out of the notebook yet.

These early poems of young poets aged 15 – 30, who (the poets) are not published yet, will be presented at a unique event.  

These young poets are invited to read their work at the presence of well-known poets, who will also read from their own poems.

There will be videopoem projections and poetic performances too, which will be followed by an open discussion and an exchange of views on writing and poetry expression.

Additionally, these participating poets (young and not so young!) will be included with one poem (and a short biography and photo) in a printed edition that will be presented at the event. This book will be for the young poets their first publication!
