28 May, 8:00 pm
The Translit group unites a number of well-known poets who represent an avant-garde of the St. Petersburg poetry. Read about some of them here. This is your chance not only to listen to practicing modern poets who publish their poetry in journals and print editions, but also to ask them questions about what it is to be a Poet in Russia today, what challenges they need to overcome, and what their cultural, social and civic mission is.
We encourage you to browse the Translit website to prepare for the meeting that will require both an intellectual and spiritual effort.
