Jan Wagenaar – PoetsClub op vrijdag

(The Netherlands, 0)

This modest (letter) poet but great lover of poetry landed in Dordrecht in the late 1960s. Since his first visit to the Poetry International Festival in 1970, he has not missed a festival and has never stopped reading poetry, writing and reciting his poems. In 2018 and 2019 Jan Wagenaar was one of traveling poets on the Poëziebus, this year his collection Letters to the girl Nelly W. was published in a limited edition. 

Poetry x Poetsclub Rotterdam - Open Mic
Nowhere else in this city is poetry so intensely experienced and lived as at PoetsClub Rotterdam. Every first Wednesday of the month all the poets of the city gather in Café De Schouw for an evening full of new poems. Everyone is welcome and is invited by hosts Jeroen Naaktgeboren and Miguel Santos to read at least one new poem in the packed pub. On the festival Friday and Saturday frequent PoetsClub poets perform their poems on the foyer stage in LantarenVenster.
