I just came back from the Struga Poetry Evenings in Macedonia, and I'm still excited. It was a great gathering with over 120 poets --- 80 from different parts of the world and 40 Macedonian poets. It was a festival that was full of variety, and I'm actually going to spend the next few days...and may be more, talking about it.
For now, here's a video of me, reading/performing one of my poems in a Casino! Yes, one of the places we read our poetry was....yeah. After my performance is the translation of my poetry into Macedonian which was so beautifully done, it brought tears to my eyes.
And here I am reading at Gevgelija.
