WOW: Poets of Ukraine

Get ready to immerse yourself in the rich poetry of Ukraine upstairs at Leaf on Bold Street with Liverpool Dead Good Poets. Mid-Eurovision, the event promises to be an unforgettable experience that celebrates the present and past of Ukraine’s poetic traditions.

Join us as we showcase recorded performances of some of Ukraine’s leading contemporary writers, including Yuliya Musakovska, Lyuba Yakimchuk, and Khrystia Vengryniuk.

Local poets will then take the stage, reciting their works in both English and Ukrainian, followed by performances by Ukrainian poets and singers currently residing in Liverpool.

To top off the night, we’ll also feature readings of the poetry of Ukraine’s National Poet, Taras Shevchenko, translated by Vera Rich. You won’t want to miss this exceptional celebration of Ukrainian poetry, which is a part of Writing on the Wall’s Annual WoWFest.
