Exitirion: Creative Writing and Magazine
Exitirion is a birthplace of experiential writing courses in Larissa by Sotirios Pastakas; it was demanded by the students. Thus, it is a site created solely out of the love of many people for Literature. A place to share our discoveries and our writings, always keeping in mind the words of Kostas Ritsonis that "we are just the pebbles on which the feet of great writers tread".
Exitirion was born as an extension of experiential writing courses and it is logical to keep its "didactic" character with its various columns.
Exitirion is an open source digital publisher and literature magazine in Greece. In our third year we have an active engagement in presenting poetry, literature, ebooks foremost in Greek.
Nevertheless we are also engaged through various collaborations with Italian poets and digital magazines: Inverso – Giornale di poesia and YAWP, in presenting translated Italian poetry in Greek and vice versa. Currently we are presenting a series of translated Serbian writers. Also we have organized various local events and participated in national (Thessalian Poetry Festival) and international (World Poetry Movement) events presenting authors and poets. All these actions are delivered with the constant guidance and help of Sotirios Pastakas.
