Sonnets by contemporary Greek poets in honor of Lorentzos Mavilis…

“Words (can) do it”

To honor the centenary of poet, translator, statesman and soldier, Lorentzos Mavilis, “Words (can) do it” invited members of the public to write a sonnet – a poetic form for which Lorentzos Mavilis was particularly renowned.
Of the 42 sonnets that were submitted, Panayotis Ioannidis, Pavlina Marvin, Yannis Patilis and Alexandra Plastira selected 17 to be read by their poets in this event dedicated to the memory of the poet. The 17 participants are:

Yuli Volanaki, Anna Griva, John Efhymiades, Lena Kallergi, Sofia Kolotourou, Kostas Koutsourelis, Alexios Mainas, Stergios Mitas, Neda Monk, Spyridon Pendefoundis, Sakis Serefas, Danai Sioziou, Dimitris Soldatos, Alekos Florakis, Andia Frantzi, Michael Chatzigeorgiou, Antonis  Psaltis.

During the event, each of the 17 poets will also read a sonnet by Mavilis and say a few words about the poet.
