CAIRO – 11 July 2021: The House of Arab Poetry, affiliated to the Cultural Development Fund Sector, in cooperation with the Egyptian Public Library, announced the launch of the Classical Poetry Competition for the best manuscript collection for the year 2021, bearing the name of the great poet Salah Abdel-Sabour.
The deadline for receiving the participating works is the end of July, and the prize for the competition is L.E 10,000.
The House of Poetry is not just a place but an all-encompassing association that defines what poets have in common.
The Egyptian House of Poetry is an expression of the identity and specificity of Egyptian poetry within Arabic poetry on the one hand, or poetry of other languages on the other.
Thus, the Egyptian House of Poetry is not a closed space, but rather an open horizon for languages, dialects, forms, and different poetic experiences for Arab and foreign poets, and for poetry houses and other institutions interested in this beautiful art from around the world.
