Literary Society / 2nd İzmir Poetry Festival

poetryOur Student Literary Society organized a very succesful follow-up to last year’s İzmir Poetry Festival. Poets from the U.K. and the U.S, such as Lucy Beynon, Lisa Jeschke , Carl Boon, Edmund Hardy, Jessica Pujol, Richard Parker, Andrew Spragg  together with our own graduate Gizem Okulu, met with a Yaşar University audience at two separate panels.  Lucy Beynon and Lisa Jeschke facilitated a poetry workshop in the morning for students, where they got to write their own poems in English.

The event was followed by a casual and fun open-mic evening at Nr42 Cafe at Alsancak.
