Austrian and British poets collaborate - April Thursday 12th 2018
at The Austrian Cultural Forum, London

Another full house for the European Poetry Festival in it's inaugural year, with a special focus event which paired some of the finest avant-garde and literary poets from Austria, and their British contemporaries, to present brand new collaborations made for the night. The event featured: Robert Prosser & SJ Fowler / Max Hofler & Iris Colomb / Daniela Chana & Phoebe Power

The evening was opened with brilliant 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 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.
