Latvian Poetry - European Poetry Festival

Kirils Ecis & Maria Celina Val 

In what was a brilliant live celebration of both literary and experimental poetry in collaboration, three Latvian poets - Krišjānis Zeļģis, Krista Anna Belševica, Kirils Ecis - were at the heart of a night of memorable live literary works. Hosted at Kingston University’s RIBA award winning Town House in Kingston upon Thames and supported by British based poets also sharing collaborations, this was a joyous, experimental night of new live literature.

The European Poetry Festival celebrates, in the UK and beyond, the grand resurgence in avant-garde and literary poetry that has marked the 21st century in Europe. It aims to not only innovate what a live poetry experience might be, but to inculcate community and engagement between poets across the continent, as well as between new audiences and complex poetries.

The "Latvian Literature" platform was established in order to promote recognition of Latvian literature and its distribution abroad, to ensure international cooperation among publishers, literary agents, writers, translators, and organizations working in the fields of literature and publishing. We are here to provide you with a diverse array of information on Latvian authors, books, our publishing industry, and innovations within the industry.
