Literaturwerkstatt Berlin took over the German editorship of PIW again in 2010, and has prepared four poets for this portal since:
From early May 2012, there will be a newly built website, which will combine the PIW archive with the current website of the Poetry International Foundation (including all the information about the annual festival in Rotterdam).
From 4th to 12th June the 11th poesiefestival berlin will focus on the Mediterranean.
On the website & blog of lyrikline.org we will accompany the festival e.g. by presenting some poetry films around the sea from the archives of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival.
