Poetry Marathon

Poetry Marathon brings us a selection of recently published Finnish contemporary poetry! The poems of the poets performing at the marathon can be seen during Poetry Moon Festival on the info screens of HSL public transport, and on poetry cards published in pursuance of Poetry Moon.

The poets performing at the marathon are Milka Luhtaniemi, Virpi Vairinen, Susinukke Kosola, Taneli Viljanen, Miia Toivio, Olli Heikkonen, Peter Mickwitz and Vilja-Tuulia Huotarinen.

The marathon is hosted by Ilona Rantamäki and Matias Loikala.

The marathon takes place at Tiivistämö after the Dancing Bear event. Together these events offer an abundance of poetry!

The event is in Finnish.

Free entry.

In collaboration with HSL.

INFO: At Suvilahti on the 25th of August there is an open air concert by the Danish band DAD. Therefore it is the easiest to navigate to Tiivistämö from Kalasatama/REDI shopping centre. It will be difficult to park in the area. There is only 300m from the Kalasatama metro station to Tiivistämö. Please reserve more time than usual to get to Tiivistämö on Thursday under these conditions.
