Poetry is one of the most contemporary art forms of our times. It is cleverer and more diverse than it has been for a long time. Nevertheless, it seems to operate away from the public view. The economic situation of many poets and poetry publishers is accordingly precarious.
The Fokus Lyrik Festival Congress (7-10 March 2019) in Frankfurt am Main offers poets and publishers a forum for exchange and networking for the first time. 126 participants and numerous guests from all German-speaking countries will take part.
