Poetry night 2022 | Open Call.

Calling all poets interested in performing their pieces at the Limassol Book Fair 2022. The poetry event will be held on the evening of November 26, 2022 at Carob Mills Venue, Limassol.

Bridges.

Our main theme this year is BRIDGES which can be interpreted in a multitude of ways.

A meeting place, a possibility for connection and communication, a metaphor. With the unfolding of events over the last couple of years, we feel there is a great need to open up dialogue about the role of literature, words, and language in “bridging” the upheavals across communities, to reflect and re-engage, to share and empower with knowledge, understanding, and empathy the continuation of growth within the industry of literature and publishing.

 

We are calling local poets to submit proposals under this year’s theme to be performed during the Poetry Evening of the Limassol Book Fair (Saturday November 26th, 2022). 

Criteria for Submission.

  1. Poems must be original and should reflect the theme of “Bridges”. You are welcome to get creative with the theme. You can also perform a piece that you have performed before. 

  2. Each performance must not exceed 5 minutes. If you have a longer piece, you are welcome to read an excerpt.

  3. All languages are welcome. Please indicate if you would like to display a translation of your poem during the performance. (Translations should be provided by the poets and submitted 2 weeks prior to the performance).

  4. Proposals for participation should be submitted using the form below by August 31, 2022. You will be notified by September 2022 if your proposal has been accepted.
