Fiction and Poetry / Parma and Florence

Since many years, the Departments for Culture of Parma and Florence Municipalities promote events connected with youth writing through the relevant Archivi Giovani Artisti (Young Artists’ Archives). The Parma Archivi Giovani Artisti produces, in partnership with the publishing house Monte Università Parma, «La Luna di Traverso», a magazine involving hundreds of Italian emerging authors. The publication is complemented with the event Inchiostri d’Autore, a fringe activity dedicated to writing, attended by prominent figures of the national cultural scene.

The Florence Archivio Giovani Artisti looks after a structured poetry project, «Nodo Sottile», that includes a residential writing workshop, the publication of “Quaderno di Nodo Sottile“ and the publication of a new work by the most promising poet selected, at an important national publishing house

The partnership between the two corporations, that started two years ago on the occasion of the ParmaPoesia Festival, is looking at new enterprises. On the agenda, a concrete investment for training and promotion of young authors through a more intense exploitation of the web, the involvement of important figures of the literary circles and the circulation of anthologies produced by the project “Born to Write”.
