IPF 2018, 4th Edition, 15-17 September, Rahovec, Kosovo



What an experience we earned in three previous editions making possible of around 100 poets representing 100 countries with unique culture and heritage. The prominent World Poets came and left their blueprints with their originality and outstanding performance. They honored us with their presence whilst to us remain the task and endeavor to maintain and improve our aim of celebrating the beautiful word, good friendship, peace, exchange of experience, cultural exchange and human fraternity.

The feedback we took from poets from previous editions are useful tool to improve our performance as organizer and making the Festival a place for desire to return in future editions.

In this third edition of the Festival we were able to gather around 20 new names, new poets that are in Kosovo for the first time. We were able to bring poets and make bonds to us and to each other. Every year we have new poets because we want to have more new friends in the World, to publish them in Albanian Language and publish our poets in world languages.

We are dedicated to the Festival to preserve its fundamental criteria which is bringing the most authentic and most original poets in the World today. They represent their Culture and in particular their Poetry as extremely intimate and individual act of creation that made their name not only in their respective country of origin but going beyond their borders in a Global Art Arena, respectively.

The Festival every year bring new and dynamic model of organization and implementation. This year for the first time we have also Children literature poets who shall read in a front of juvenile audience. Therefore this festival is so unique and it shall remain so.

We wish you a pleasant stay during the Festival’s events and gain the most beautiful human experience promoting beauty of diversity, Peace, Tolerance, Creativity, and promoting our Human Values.
