“Journey to the Centre of the Book” was the motto of the 5th Belgrade Festival of Children’s Literature KROKODOKODIL. The festival was once again a multimedia presentation of the world of books to children and young readers. In cooperation with actors of the Youth Theatre Dadov, the associations KROKODIL and OK performed a staged play on November 17, made after several children’s books.
The last guest of the Writers in Residence program Absolute Modern in 2017 was the Kosovar writer Elife Krasniqi. The TRADUKI-supported program allowed her to live and work for four weeks in Skopje. During her stay, she worked on her latest poetry book and on her doctoral thesis.
Three fellowships in the second half of 2017 marked the beginning of the residence program for writers in translators in the House of Literature and Translation in Sofia, the program that is supported by TRADUKI.
