(2000) is a student at the Edith Stein College in The Hague. She loves the stage and likes to combine her writing with a strong performance. She says this about poetry: "I think that poetry is hidden everywhere and that's why it's so magnificent and mysterious. If you look closely, you can find the most beautiful words, which you need to express as quickly as possible. That's how you become a poet, through your eyes." Golunska took workshops at the Hague Poetry Guild to prepare for her appearance at Writers Unlimited. That performance won her a spot on the stage during the Writers Fest, where she recited her poem alongside two other finalists. The public applauded longest and loudest for her, which won her the inaugural Jonge Campert Prize for best poetry student.

    A festive program moderated by Hassnae Bouazza and built around the presentation of the Jan Campert Prizes, the literary awards of the City of The Hague. We celebrate Dutch literature with a variety of performances by writers, poets and musicians.

    Belgian author and poet Carmien Michels opens Writers Fest 2018 by reciting one of her poems. Then Arie Storm, novelist and critic, offers his take on 'The State of Dutch Literature'.

    Before Joris Wijsmuller, alderman for civic development, living, sustainability and culture with the City of The Hague, hands out the prizes to the winners, the audience determines which of the three nominated high schoolers will win the Young Campert Prize for a young poet from The Hague. The students present their own poems, written during poetry worshops at school.

    Marije Langelaar (1978) will then receive the Jan Campert Prize for her poetry collection Vonkt! (Sparks!) Her laudation is performed by dancer and choreographer Uri Eugenio, known for his appearances with Scapino and LeineRoebana and in So You Think You Can Dance.

    Jeroen Olyslaegers (1967) will receive the F. Bordewijk Prize for his novel WIL. He will be honoured by historian, jurist, lecturer and rector of the University of Antwerp Herman Van Goethem and noted actress Alejandra Theus, who will perform an excerpt from WIL.

    The Nienke van Hichtum Prize 2017 will be awarded to Annet Schaap (1965) for Lampje (Little Lamp); she will be serenated by tango guitarist and contrabassist Kay Sleking.

    The afternoon culminates with the awarding of the Constantijn Huygens Prize to Hans Tentije for his entire poetic Oeuvre. Tentije will be musically honoured by Cellist Ernst Reijseger and essayist Cyrille Offermans will make a celebratory speech.

    This event is a collaboration between Winternachten festival, the Jan Campert Foundation / Literatuurmuseum. Program in Dutch.
