Nordic Poetry Festival : Norway 2019
Celebrating collaboration, performance and innovation in contemporary literary and avant-garde poetry, the Nordic and European Poetry Festival comes to the west coast of Norway with events in Ålesund and Bergen this autumn. Some of the finest poets from across Europe, from Ireland, Russia, Belgium and the UK, perform and collaborate with some of Norway’s most considerable poets in two unique and brilliant events.
