The National Book Centre of Greece (EKEBI) and the Ministry of Tourism are turning to the dynamic of young Greek authors by organizing for the first time on Greek grounds the Emerging Writers’ Festival.
Under the theme “We have a lot to say, to read, to discover, to see”, the festival will open its gates to the public on December 9 and 10, 2011, at the Michael Cacoyiannis Foundation and in cooperation with network of three respective European festivals taking place in Madova, Berlin and Wales.
Prose writers and poets, aged under 35 (born after 1976), who have published one or two books so far, are being proposed by prominent literature journals in order to participate in this festival and present their work to the younger and older generations of Greek readers.
Three of the participants will be selected by a special committee and will be awarded with a semester long fellowship to enhance their next creative steps.
At the same time, the Michael Cacoyiannis Foundation will present in cooperation with the Metropolitan Stories a “dialogue” amidst other forms of art. The links between different art expressions will be demonstrated through a series of events, such as open discussions, theatrical plays, music, dance, short films screenings, art exhibitions, happenings and contests
