Poetry International Festival Rotterdam

Poetry International Festival Rotterdam

This year, the Poetry International Festival Rotterdam turns 50! The milestone makes it the oldest festival in the city, and one of the oldest in the country, with a wealth of history and highlights. Nobel Prize-winning poets once stood on Poetry’s stages as bright young talents, and the festival is both a shining example for, and founding parent of, poetry festivals worldwide. Poetry International celebrates its golden anniversary with an extra festive edition at de Doelen, which also hosted the debut festival back in 1970.

Trailblazing poets will deliver transformative work thrumming with the now. Unique fusions of poetry by engaging artists from the worlds of music, cinema, and dance amplify the power, the beauty, and the personal impact of poetry, here in the form of an intimate reading or workshop, there as a multidisciplinary theatrical poetry spectacle. Right in the heart of the city, inviting, challenging, unmissable.

Expanding Universes… International Writing Conference – Poland

Expanding Universes… International Writing Conference – Poland

We’re all surrounded with fictional worlds – be it from movies, books, video games. . . The purpose of the “Expanding Universes. Exploring Transmedial & Transfictional Ways of WorldBuilding” international conference is to immerse attendees in the idea of these worlds and the processes that go into building them. “We all engage in a plethora of ways of world-making, and what transmedial narratology needs nowadays to do, is to analyze these storyworlds in their variety without imposing any paradigmatic world-building model for creators to follow”
