Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet
Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet is an initiative of readers from several virtual communities who aim to make the quality and vitality of poetry in Catalan more visible on the Internet. To this end, we are making the most of the synergy between World Poetry Day (21 March) and Dia de la poesia catalana a internet (Catalan Poetry Day on the Internet, 17 March) to encourage the presence of Catalan poets and their work in the social networks.
During Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet we shall be posting on the Internet the live poetry recitals which have been programmed throughout Catalonia. This means we can all see and hear more than fifty poets in Catalan at any time and in all kinds of formats.
From 17 to 21 March we invite you to share poems and, in particular, to listen to our poets from different generations who will read us their poems. We have asked them to give their work a face and a voice and throughout Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet we shall make available a selection of audio and video recordings of their voices in different social networks.
You can follow these activities on Twitter (@lletra) and, if you like, take part by tweeting your favourite poems with the usual hashtags of the Catalan community of readers: #jollegeixo, #piulempoesia, #poesiacatalana and #dmpoesia.
Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet is a joint digital activity which presents the voices of Catalan poets online.A range of complementary activities has been designed for the Facebook and Instagram communities, as you can see by opening this link: Setmana de la poesia catalana a internet 2015 (the 2015 event of Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet).
The Week has the backing of entities and institutions which have supported Dia de la poesia catalana a internet (Catalan Poetry Day on the Internet) since its inception and, this year, we are adding the digital projects on Catalan literature from all the Catalan universities belonging to an inter-university digital network of literary knowledge sharing.
If you like poetry, read it and enjoy sharing it, we welcome you to Catalan Poetry Week on the Internet. We’re putting everything into it!
