Luxembourgish poetry at the Marché de la Poésie
Welcoming thousands of poets, publishers and readers, the Marché de la Poésie has become over the years one of the most important poetry events in Europe. Luxembourg has been present for many years, notably with Éditions Phi, which will be present again this year from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 October 2021.
Luxembourg poetry will also be honoured on stage with the presentation on 23 October at 3.45 p.m. of the anthology edited by Jean Portante, Lignes de partage, 22 poètes du Luxembourg, published by Bruno Doucey.
It is worth noting that Jean Portante will also be on stage on 22 October at 5.30 pm for a tribute to Bernard Pozier by his publishers and poets friends (Sylvestre Clancier, Françoise Coulmin, Bruno Doucey, Jean-Yves Reuzeau, Yolande Villemaire).
Let’s meet in 2022, where Luxembourg will be the guest country of honour, a recognition of this continuous presence.
About the Poetry Market
The Marché de la Poésie is the largest poetry event in France, bringing together some 450 mainly French-speaking publishing houses and poetry magazines each year at Place Saint-Sulpice in Paris. Each year, a foreign country is invited to be the guest of honour thus given a platform to showcase its contemporary poetry.
Éditions Phi received the Support for Participation in Fairs for their presence at the Marché de la Poésie.
