About the Event
We have invited a Danish, a Latvian, a Ukrainian, and a Belarusian poet to take part in the event. The poets will each read aloud from their own poems in both their native language and in English. Apart from that, they will also have a discussion about their poetry work and life as a young poet in their respective countries, and how poetry can deal with societal and political issues.
