AbsoluteVille is the new Italian Partner

Posted in about us, Lello Voce by Heiko Strunk on 30. September 2010

Pordenonelegge – a literature festival in the north of Italy with hundreds of writers and thousands of visitors…. and lyrikline.org right in the middle!

As lyrikline.org’s project manager, I was invited to take part in a round table about poetry and New Media on September 19 and to present lyrikline.org itself.  The discussion was hosted by Lello Voce,  an Italian poet,  editor and artistic director of the AbsolutePoetry Festival.
In the scope of this event Lello Voce announced that AbsoluteVille will be  the new partner for Italy in the international network of lyrikline.org.

AbsoluteVille is the website that bundles many activities centered around the AbsolutePoetry Festival:  E-Zine, authors’ blogs, theoretic discussions, and of course the festival itself.

This new network partner aims to strengthen the presence of Italian poetry on our poetic world map lyrikline.org.

We are looking forward to this cooperation!

If you are residing in Italy, maybe in Monfalcone region, you have the chance to attend the AbsolutePoetry Festival. It began just yesterday, on September 29 and will last until October 2. Here you’ll find the programme of AbsolutePoetry Festival.

AbsoluteVille ist neuer Partner in Italien

Am 19.9. fand im Rahmen des Festivals Pordenonelegge (Pordenone, Italien) ein Runder Tisch zum Thema Poesie und Neue Medien statt, zu dem ich als Projektleiter von lyrikline.org eingeladen war, um u.a. ebendort die Website zu präsentieren.

Moderiert wurde die Veranstaltung von Lello Voce, Dichter, Herausgeber und künstlerischer Leiter des  AbsolutePoetry Festivals.

Auf der Bühne gab Lello Voce bekannt, dass AbsoluteVille der neue Partner für Italien im internationalen Netzwerk von lyrikline.org sein wird. AbsoluteVille ist als Website der Ort und das Label, das viele Aktivitäten einer sehr lebendigen Poesieszene rund um das Festival AbsolutePoetry bündelt: E-Zine, diverse Autoren-Blogs, Theoriediskussionen und natürlich das Festival selbst.

Italien und die italienische Poetenschaft auf der poetischen Weltkarte lyrikline stärker abzubilden, das hat sich unser neuer italienischer Netzwerkpartner nun zur Aufgabe gemacht.

Wir freuen uns auf die Zusammenarbeit!

Gerade in diesen Tagen findet vom 29.9.-2.10.2010 das diesjährige Absolute Poetry Festival statt.  Wer also in der Region Monfalcone unterwegs ist, sollte mal vorbeischauen.

Italian news…

Pordenonelegge – a literature festival in the north of Italy with hundreds of writers and thousands of visitors…. and lyrikline.org right in the middle!

Heiko Strunk, lyrikline.org project manager traveled to the festival for an event on September 19 to speak about poetry and New Media and to present lyrikline.org itself.

The whole town of Pordenone was full of literature and Heiko not only met Michael Ondaatje there but also attended an event with Art Spiegelman.

Moreover the stay in Italy led to the second good news which is, that a new partner for Italy in the international network of lyrikline.org signed the partner contract.

It’s the institution / website AbsoluteVille, an active source of information and activities centered around the festival AbsolutePoetry. An E-Zine, authors’ blogs, theoretic discussions, and of course the festival itself are displayed: http://www.absolutepoetry.org

Poetry Rain in Berlin

Posted in about us by Heiko Strunk on 2. September 2010

Saturday evening held some impressive moments for the people in Berlin and an event that is seldom to experience. On August 28 at 8pm a helicopter circulated above Lustgarten square in the middle of Berlin and dropped tens of thousands of poems by poets from Chile and Germany. This event took place during the long night of museums in Berlin with a focus on Bicentenario this year.
The falling poetry pieces in the evening sky and all the people trying to catch them created a great and very special atmosphere with the helicopter circulating for about half an hour. We heard people discussing the best ways to catch the poems, others starting a competition on who collected more… we experienced people who were absolutely eager for poetry. All photos: © Cara
