The new generation of poets gives us the strength to live in the present and face our future. Having learned to survive without any support, the poets of our time have found ways to come to the fore by creating powerful mechanisms of mutual aid and cooperation that permeate their work and benefit readers. Based on friendship, they very often support each other and disseminate their works together to the public, in a spirit of reciprocity and spiritual love. They invent new ways of writing, presenting and experiencing poetry, they communicate and participate in international trends, they break forms, they value the past but do not submit to it, they fight for a future without inequalities, without racism, sexism, patriarchy and injustice – but they don't just wait for the future to come – they build it with their words and actions.
