Interviews on “poetry & refugees” for World Poetry Day 2015
It has become a tradition over the past years that we use World Poetry Day on March 21 to focus on a specific aspect or topic of the poetry world. The situation of refugees has a sad currentness all over the world today and it affects also poets, in their personal life and in their writing.
We asked a handful of “lyrikline-poets” who have a personal relation to this topic to answer a written interview to share their ideas and experiences. Each of the poets got a questionnaire and was
free to chose from a range of questions. The answers that reached us are remarkable, important, and moving and we would like to thank all the poets very much for openly speaking about their opinions and events in their life.

You can read each interview in an own blog article and we hope you’ll find them as enriching as we do. Have a good World Poetry Day and “Listen to the Poet!”
