Participate now!

Celebrate your free language and send in a poem about the following theme: the most important thing.
Use the words you want to use!

There are so many different spoken languages in Friesland. Every language contributes to our community.
So, we are inviting you to show the world how beautiful and how colourful these languages are.
It does not matter if it is in Arabic, Frisian, Dutch, English, Turkish, any language is welcome!

Within all this diversity:

What is the most important thing?

That question is the subject of your poem.

  • With this experiment you don’t have to play by the rules.
  • All ages are welcome to participate.
  • The most beautiful poems will be published.
  • You can start sending in your poetry (maximum of two per person). Starting May 1st we will be putting poetry on the website for inspiration.
  • The definite outcome will be made known during Ljouwert Kulturele Haadstêd 2018 (Ljouwert Cultural Capital 2018)
