State historical-architectural, landscape and natural museum-preserve «Izborsk»

The festival entitled “Slavonic Field” will take place in Izborsk on July 29.

The festival is organized and held by the State Committee for Culture of the Pskov Region, Pskov Regional division of the Union of Writers of Russia, Pskov Regional noncommercial association “Pskov Bards” and Izborsk State Museum-Reserve of History, Architecture and Land.

This year “Slavonic field” festival will be held for the seventh time. For the first time it was held in 2008 when the authors and publishers of “Poetry. The 21st century” literary magazine offered to organize it in the Pskov Region. Eight poets – the authors writing for “Poetry. The 21st century” magazine and poets from Pskov became the participants of the festival. 

In 2012 when the 1150th anniversary of the establishment of Russian statehood was celebrated in Russia, the festival was held in Izborsk as a historical poetry festival. Starting from 2013 a poetry competition has been held in the framework of the festival. 

In 2017 the poetry competition includes three nominations:

- an open nomination – for all the participants, except for the authors who will participate in the Professional nomination;

- the Professional nomination – for professional authors, including members of literary unions;

- “The Slavonic Springs” nomination – for young poets (16 – 27 years old).

The winners in “The Slavonic Springs” nomination will automatically become the participants of the final part of the all-Russian Mtsyri festival, which will be held in Moscow in Maxim Gorky Literature Institute in December 2017. 

72 poets will take part in the competition this year.

This year the festival’s program also includes a competition for the best poem about Pskov, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Stanislav Zolotsev, a famous Pskov poet, writer, translator and the author of the hymn of Pskov.

The participants and guests of the festival will enjoy creative and friendly atmosphere, guided tours, interesting meeting with Russian writers and poets, declamation of poems.  

We will be happy to see you in Izborsk!
