International poets in conversation

This weekend I am blogging for  Gŵyl Farddoniaeth Ryngwladol Gogledd Cymru – the North Wales International Poetry Festival over at http://northwalesinternationalpoetryfestival.blogspot.co.uk. In the lead up to the events I’ve been interviewing some of the fantastic international poets on the bill. So far I’ve posted mini-interviews with Greek poet Vassilis Amanatidis and Doina Ioanid from Romania, a poet well-known for her surreal prose poems. Tomorrow I will also publish conversations with Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl (Iceland) and Christine Huber (Austria) with more to come over the weekend. You can read more about the festival at http://www.northwalesinternationalpoetryfestival.org.
