It was created with the aim of popularizing poetry and poets in a broader cultural context and it is one of the oldest manifestations of its kind in the country. The festival has an artistic and cultural-scientific character. In addition to the major poetry programs, there are a number of related content, both musical and visual.

The Festival is always attended by poets of different generations, from affirmed once to those who, by announcing their first books, are recognized as interesting poetic voices. The aim is to show the diversity of poetics, styles and artistic ideas. Poetry readings are highly attended programs, and the Festival itself brings together the entire cultural public of the city. The programs are held in several locations: the National Library, the museum, the gallery, the theatre, outdoors and in the Žiča Monastery.
