A one-day ‘Naga poets’ meet’ was held Tuesday at NEZCC conference hall organised by National Book Trust, in association with North East Zone Cultural Centre and district administration, Dimapur at NEZCC complex coinciding with Dimapur Book Fair.
Over ten aspiring poets and few professional poets took part in the meet, which was held on the topic “The essence of writing poetry and its importance with special reference to Nagaland”.
The meet witnessed aspiring poets share their creative pieces and explain its meanings. Besides sharing poems, the meet also discussed etiquettes of poem writing and concluded that poems need not rhyme.
Editor, Nagaland Page Monalisa Changkija, who is also a professional poet, was the main speaker of the meet.
Urging aspiring poets to open up, Changkija urged them not only to wait for their books to be published but contribute their pieces to periodicals so their creative works would be recognized.
National Book Trust (NBT), editor, Benny Kurian chaired the programme.
Meanwhile, the North East Zone Cultural Centre (NEZCC), jointly with the United Tribal Society, would organize “Poetry Festival” on the theme of Child Rights at NEZCC complex, from March 17 to March 19.
