International Poetry Event
Join a Cuban and Serbian poet for this exciting international poetry event, held in association with Arc Publications. Ivana Milankov was born in Belgrade and is the author of seven books of poetry and one book of poetical prose. Milankov belongs to the first generation of poets from central and eastern Europe, who were influenced by anti-establishment poetries. She now earns a living as a teacher of English in a secondary school. Víctor Rodríguez Núñez is one of Cuba’s most noteworthy contemporary writers. He has published 11 books of poetry, many of which have won literary awards. His poems have appeared widely including in many international periodicals.
