Poetry event “Amongst the Sirens. New Poetry of War

Why is this interesting?
The poets whose poems we are going to hear are among the authors of the anthology “Amongst the Sirens. New Poetry of War”, which is being prepared for publication. It is an attempt to put together under one cover the most important things that have emerged in Ukrainian poetry during the full-scale russian invasion. We, along with the invited poets, will not only read poems but also try to summarize what 2022 has meant for Ukrainian poetry and them personally.
