Readings:“Struga Poetry Evenings 2019”

In addition to the recipient of the Golden Wreath, the famous Romanian poetess Anna Blandiana, as well as to the recipient of the Bridges of Struga Award, the young Croatian poetess Monica Herceg, more than 30 of the invited foreign poets from a variety of countries have confirmed their participation in this year’s edition of the festival.

We will pinpoint a few of them, like Rafael Soler from Spain, eminent Spanish poet and storyteller; Satchidanandan, one of the most significant poets of India who writes also in Malayalam language; Mia Lecomte from Italy, poetess with French roots; István Kemény from Hungary, one of the most outstanding contemporary Hungarian poets; but also Yorgos Yannopoulos from Greece, a poet whom the Macedonian audience has to some degree met before.

The Festival will also feature the most esteemed poets from the Republic of North Macedonia, poets from different generations, as well as the poets that were selected for the competition for this year’s Brakja Miladinovci Award.

The festival is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
