A note on: The Iskele Poetry Festival

An amazing week in Northern Cyprus visiting for the Iskele Poetry Festival with a great group of poets from all over the world. I've created a page with a detailed travelogue, with reading videos and many pictures www.stevenjfowler.com/iskele

"From the moment the festival organisers optimistically interpreted my middle initial J as standing for Joy, and popped that on the event poster that was dotted around the island, I knew this was going to be a memorable festival. As if often the case, the generosity of my hosts in Cyprus made this beautiful few days the beginning of many relationships and the catalyst for unique experiences. Thanks to Emel Kaya, Ruhsan İskifoğlu, Nurduran Duman and all who made it happen."
