Project "Approach. Kharkiv": Meeting with Ukrainian Writers


On October 8, 2020, Karazin University held a meeting of Ukrainian writers with students.

The event took place within the framework of the literary project “Approach”, which involves the PEN Ukraine members visiting one of the cities to conduct a dialogue with local readers about contemporary literature.

The moderator of the meeting was the Ukrainian poet, novelist, translator, public activist Serhii Zhadan, who welcomed those present: “It is nice to see you after a long pause, it is nice to be in this room, in this university again. Yesterday, we had a discussion in the Literary Museum within the framework of the humanitarian initiative ‘The Fifth Kharkiv’, which we are implementing together with Karazin University and the Literary Museum. Today, we will also discuss different topics: what is happening in our city, what is happening in our society, what is happening in our country.”

Serhii Zhadan also introduced the PEN Ukraine delegation: PEN Ukraine President Andrii Kurkov; Lviv writer Gaska Shiyan; poet, translator, literary critic and this year’s Shevchenko National Prize winner Mariiana Kiianovska; author of retro-detective and retro-adventure novels Bohdan Kolomiichuk.

Andrii Kurkov spoke about the organization represented by the speakers: “PEN is an international association of writers that promotes literature, democratic values, protection of freedom of speech, protection of writers and journalists imprisoned in different countries. It was founded 99 years ago, so next year it will be a century. The PEN Ukraine was formally founded in 1989, but started operating 10-12 years ago.”

Those present discussed literature, the PEN Ukraine, the Ukrainian Writers’ Union, work of the writers present at the meeting, and socio-political processes in the country. The speakers also answered questions of the audience, touching on current issues of literature, freedom of speech and tips for emerging writers.

The meeting was broadcast live on Karazin University pages (Youtube, Facebook), so everyone interested can view the recording of it.
