TEHRAN (IBNA) -- Secretariat of the 17th Fajr International Poetry Festival at Iran’s Book and Literature House Institute issued a call inviting poets to the event scheduled to be held in winter 2023.
As well as holding dialogues with prominent contemporary poets of Iran, this festival aims to discover and introduce the young poets of Iran as well as expanding sympathy and language consensus with Persian speakers all around the world.
This period of the festival will select works among those published in Persian for the first time in 2021 and later with the permission of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance. It includes five literary groups: classical poetry, modern poetry (in the style of Nima and blank poetry), colloquial poetry, as well as children’s and young adult’s poetry and on poetry (research in the field of poetry).
These works should be composed and published in Persian, and the collected poems must be independently published; Therefore, joint collected poems are not judged.
It should be noted that the secretariat will simply review the works in the judgment process submitted by the poet or publisher. The winners will receive a cash prize, a plaque of honor and the festival’s badge.
