In February, we recommended that you check out the excellent poetry platform, Lyrikline. For those who need further convincing, what will you find there? According to the site: "At the moment lyrikline.org presents 600 poets, 5,500 poems, 50(!) mother tongues and 6,600 translations into more than 49 languages."
All the more reason to pay them a visit this week, as they are celebrating their 10th anniversary! Congrats! The week-long celebrations in Berlin will close this Saturday, October 31st, with readings by poets Nicole Brossard (Québec), Babangoni wawa Chisale (Malawi), Elke Erb (Germany), Claudia Keelan (USA), Nikola Madzirov (Macedonia), Thomas Möhlmann (Netherlands), Remi Raji (Nigeria), Daniel Samoilovich (Argentina), and Lutz Seiler (Germany). Even better, you will be able to follow the festivities via a live stream on the Lyrikline blog starting at 8pm CET.
