Join us for the 5th International Czesław Miłosz Festival - now held annually!

The festival will be held between 9 and 12 June 2016 in Kraków. Join us for meetings with poetry!

The Miłosz Festival is Poland’s most important poetry salon, evolved from the traditions of meetings of Poets of the East and West, held years ago under the patronage of Poland’s Nobel laureates Wisława Szymborska and Czesław Miłosz. The Festival’s multicultural and multilingual atmosphere brings together guests from around the world and fosters discussion on poetry, helping us experience it in new ways and confronting literature with the everyday. During next year’s event we will be joined by authors from Poland and abroad for a rich, varied programme of debates, panels, concerts and exhibitions.
