Five New Poets at the Literatur&Wein Festival
An international crowd
For the second year of Versopolis Literaturhaus NÖ chose another
five poets for taking part at the festival „Literatur & Wein“.
From Slovenia we invited Ana Pepelnik, a poet and translator who
already knows Krems as she had been Writer-In-Residence of
Literaturhaus NÖ in summer 2013.
Another guest will be Tiziano Fratus, who lives in a small village at the
foot of the Italian Alps. His poetry is very strongly connected with nature.

Dagmara Kraus was born in Poland and raised there and in Germany.
She has published two books of poetry so far.
From South Wales Meirion Jordan will come and join the festival. His
writing explores how margins can represent everything from separation
of past and present to the boundaries between memory and forgetting,
having and losing.
And last but not least we are looking forward to welcome Istanbul-born
Zehra Cirak in Krems. She moved to Germany at the age of three. Since
1982 she resides and works in Berlin with the visual artist Jürgen Walter.
