"Vesa Paspaleeva" Ladies' Poetical Studio, Kyustendil

Notwithstanding their day-to-day duties and chores, they dream, love, write poems. In the solitude of the new day or in the hoarse silence of the night, they curl up and put down strings of world to make up poems. Poetry is a mission for them. These are the girls and women from the "Vesa Paspaleeva" Ladies’ Poetical Studio at the Bratstvo Community Centre.

Five years have elapsed since the establishment of poetic studio and it already involves some 20 ladies. Many of them have already published their own books, others are yet to issue them. They have different professions – schoolgirls, students, journalists, teachers, employees, but the thrill of words brings them closer and gives them wings of poetic inspiration. They experience both the pain and joy of our day.
