The Enemies project: Slovakia

A long term collaboration between the Enemies project and The Centre for Information on Literature ( this curatorial relationship has allowed for some wonderful exchanges between contemporary Slovak and British based poets since 2012 and will continue to do so. We have hosted Zuzana Husarova, Maria Ferencuhova, Juliana Sokolova, Martin Solotruk and many others over the last few years. 

Enemies: Slovakia at the Freeword Centre - November 5th 2014

For the second year running, The Enemies project presented some of the most exciting contemporary poets from Slovakia collaborating to read original works of avant garde / literary poetry with British contemporaries. Luckily for us in London we had Erik Simsik, Maria Ferencuhova and Juliana Sokolova visiting from Bratislava, all on great form both with their individual readings and some amazing collaborative works. So gratifying, after such an intense period, to see such great new works presented before a good audience in a venue I rarely work in. Thanks to the Litcentrum in Slovakia.
