Search for European Projects

Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In modern society poetry has lost its important value. Publishers are identifying the problem that poetry books don’t sell well anymore; they don't appear on the best selling books list. Inevitably this has led to a loss of opportunities for the presentation of poetry works and the new generation of European poets is rarely heard. Reduced publications, on the other hand, negatively affected people who are interested in poetry, because they find it difficult to access creative works of contemporary poets. Therefore project ePublisher aims to contribute to audience development by promoting innovative ways of publishing poems of professional and amateur poets, helping poets to reach new and enlarge audiences and improving access to poetry.Main outputs are:1. Website - a multilingual international platform for professional and amateur poets/translators. Website will contain:- Poetry platform - a communication tool for poets/translators to create, translate poems as well as discuss them);- Poetry writing games, which will help to increase general interest in poetry through innovative ways to create poems;- On-line poetry library, which will contain written, video and audio poems representing each partner country.2. National poetry promotion events such as public poetry reading, excursions to local poetry places, video projections of poetry texts on the buildings' walls.3. International poetry festivals in each partner country (which include interactive workshops, poetry reading, etc.).4. Booklet presenting project outputs.5. Documentary films on the festivals.The project will impact on:1. Poets (professional and amateur) will be involved in creating and translating poetry with on-line tools as well as participating in poetry promotion events.2. Organizations working in relevant field will be able to use the project products.3. General public will be provided easier access to poetry works as well as opportunity to develop creative writing skills.
