Days of Poetry and Wine 2018


1. August 2018: Evenings before Days, different locations around Slovenia and abroad

22.-25. August 2018: Days of Poetry and Wine, Ptuj

Days of Poetry and Wine, one of the most well-known international poetry festivals in this part of Europe, unites poetry with enology and eriches the last warm August days with poetic, enological, culinary, musical, visual and many other unforgetable experiences, which bring the narrow medieval streets of Ptuj to life.

The 22nd edition of the festival, which will take place between 22nd and 25th August, will host two guests of honour: one of the most well-known Israeli poets Agi Mishol and a German poet, editor and the president of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts Michael Krüger. Special attention will be given to Slovene poet Jure Detela (1951-1992), whose collected works will be published by Beletrina in 2018.

We will continue our collaboration with Berlin-based Allianz Kulturstiftung in the frame of Open Letter to Europe project. This year the Letter will be written by a German author of Bulgarian descent Ilija Trojanow. Of course we won't skip the activities in the frame of Versopolis platform, the Poetry Promenade, Private Readings and other popular festival events.

Details about other guests and the programme will be published in late spring.
