Erik Jonsson on bringing light to the darkness of Northern Europe through poetry

My life with poetry


We sat down with Erik Jonsson, the festival director of Littfest, a cornerstone event within the early spring line-up of Versopolis festivals. Our discussion delved into the rich tapestry of Swedish literary culture, exploring the genesis of the festival, the evolving themes within Swedish literature, the significance of poetry festivals and the pivotal role Versopolis plays in shaping the landscape of European poetry.
