Last Friday 16 th May 2008 at 7pm the Maltese Poets Association held another Poetry Evening. The venue this time was the Razzett tal-Markiz Mallia Tabone, Mosta.
Members present read poems in English, Maltese and even in Esperanto. The Evening was presented by MPA's Secretary Charles Magro, while President Alfred Massa made his introductory discourse.
During the interval Patrick Sammut, the vice-President, had some time to present his new poetry book (co-authored with Stephen Cachia) Zifef u Rwiefen, reading a couple of his poems to those present.
Among those who participated through their poetry reading were Charles Magro, Alfred Massa, John Mallia, Maurice Mifsud Bonnici, Joe Abela, Therese Pace, Raymond Grech, Joseph Bonnici, Andrew Sciberras, Lino Grech, Salv Sammut, Rita Debono and Dr. Joe Zammit Tabona. The poems read presented a variety of themes and styles.
Member Lino Grech talked briefly about three of his new books in Maltese and English (prose and poetry) which will be soon out.
Thanks to the Ghaqda Filantropika Talent Mosti for the venue. For the Maltese Poets Association visit

I thought that your comment about Esperanto was somewhat disparaging.

"Even Esperanto"

Can I add therefore that Baldur Ragnarsson, from Iceland has been nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature, 2008.
