What we're about

We started our poetry exchange meetings early this year (2015) to present our own verses and share samples of contemporary Russian poetry. Since then, we have been meeting approximately once in a month, each time with a selected major topic or author to present. We accept all Slavic languages, contemporary, ancient and formation-stage (e.g. Siberian).

We usually read in rounds; responses to the previous reader are welcome but not obligatory. Bring your own masterpieces, or your friends', or any verses you'd like to share, or bring nothing and just come to attend - there is no obligatory degree of participation:) Both native speakers and language learners are welcome; translation service is provided on demand.

As a matter of custom, we start on Sundays, at 3 PM, and read till sunset.
