Spot on Young Poets
The literary future performs for you! Francis Broekhuijsen presents high-school students from Dalton Den Haag reciting their own poetry, the result of the Spot on Young Poets workshops and poetry lessons given at the schools by poet and guest teacher Diann van Faassen. Appearing with them is poet Roberta Petzoldt, winner of the 2019 C. Buddingh Prize. Mirle Wittekoek, a participant from last year and winner of the 2019 Young Campert Prize, also appears. DJ Socrates takes care of the sounds and beats. One or two finalists for the 2019 Young Campert Prize are chosen during the Spot on Young Poets events on Friday and Saturday. The finalists recite their poems once more on Sunday during the Schrijversfeest (Writers Fest). One of them is chosen by the public and receives the award for best Hague student poet.
