The European Poetry Festival 2018 brings together some of the finest literary and avant-garde poets of this generation to London to collaborate, perform and share the brilliance of contemporary cutting edge poetry in Europe.
special focus event of the Festival will present some of the finest
avant-garde and literary poets from Austria, and their British
contemporaries, present brand new collaborations made for the night.
The 21st century Austrian poetry scene is one of the most dynamic in Europe - firmly connected to over a century of cutting edge literary practise, and entirely remade in the image of the new century. The three poets invited to London, in their wit, their conceptual insight and their erudition are a perfect example of one of the brightest poetic traditions in modern Europe
The evening will be opened with short solo readings by other visiting European poets including Ana Seferovic (Serbia) Claudiu Komartin (Romania) Giovanna Coppola (Italy), and Anastasia Mina & Helen Michael (Cyprus / UK) and Tatiana Faia (Portugal).
The event is curated by SJ Fowler. http://www.europeanpoetryfestival.com/austria
