STRUGA Poetry Evenings

 

The Struga Poetry Evenings started in 1962 with a series of readings by a number of Macedonian poets in honour of the two brothers, Konstantin and Dimitar Miladinov, great intellectuals, teachers, and writers, born in Struga in the early 19th century. Konstantin Miladinov is considered to be the founder of modern Macedonian poetry and each year the festival officially opens with his memorable poem "Longing for the South" ("T’ga za jug") written during his student days in Moscow.

As mentioned above the major award given to a foreign poet at the Struga Poetry Evenings Festival is the "Golden Wreath Award". The award was at first given for a best poem read during the festival, but starting from 1971 it has been given to a poet for his poetic oeuvre.
