43rd Poetry International Festival Rotterdam

“Every word is changed when spoken”

For the 43rd year in a row, the Poetry International Festival in Rotterdam sets the stage for poetry from around the world. The sound of poets reading live, their passionate, inspirational perspective on life and current events, the power and beauty of their words, the meeting of many languages and cultures of the world – all these enrich our experience of poetry. Discover the wonder of language, in which “every word is changed when spoken” (Stanley Moss, Poetry International Festival 1995).
