This year Kraków will host four exceptional writers. Today we have welcomed Georgina Wilding from Nottingham, Creative Director of Nottingham Poetry Festival, the Founding Editor of Mud Press and Nottingham’s first young poet laureate. She has performed her poetry both nationally and internationally, and writes to commission for organisations such as BBC Radio Nottingham and the Royal Shakespeare Society. She has been published in journals such as “The Rialto”, and teaches poetry and performance across the midlands. Wilding will spend in Kraków two months during which you will have many opportunities to meet her at the events organized by Kraków UNESCO City of Literature. For some it might be a second meeting with her poetry – last year she was a guest of the OFF stream of the Miłosz Festival.

The Krakow UNESCO City of Literature Residency Program is dedicated to writers from the Cities of Literature of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. It aims to provide writers with a platform to showcase their work and talent to a Central European audience, support greater diversity of voices and literatures on the Polish and Central European book market and offer local writers the chance to create links with international writers as well.
