The 37th World Congress of Poets will be held in Mongolia
In Prague, the Boards of the WAAC announced Mongolia as the host country to organize the 37th World Congress of Poets (WCP) in August of 2017. Mongolian poet G.Mend-Ooyo was elected as the president of the congress.
It was in 2006 when the WCP was last held in Mongolia. We are honored and delighted to host this international event once again, after a period of 11 years.
Since 1969, the WCP has taken place in many countries and has become a podium for poets from around the world to make their voices heard for world peace.
The 37th WCP is themed "The mind of nature and the nature of the mind".
The multilingual poetry festival will take place in Ulaanbaatar and the Gobi desert, and the program will introduce you to Mongolian history, culture, nomadic life, and ancient and contemporary literature. We dedicate the event to the friends, scholars, and translators of poetry from the five continents.
