Going from the premise that something unrecorded did not happen, Festival had developed publishing activities even in 1970. Starting with the first collection, titled „Goldentongue Poems“, and all the way to „Smederevo Poetry Meridians“, which first came out in 2018, more than four hundred books were published in the form of various editions. All these books represent a unique and well-grounded anthology of the Festival, where the works of significant poets from around the world are represented, including also the poetry of local authors.
GOLDEN KEY OF SMEDEREVO
Within the scope of the „Golden Key of Smederevo“ edition, every year selected poems of the winner of the eponymous award are published. The edition is published in two languages – the winning poet’s mother tongue and Serbian.
ЗЛАТНИ КЉУЧИЋ СМЕДЕРЕВА
У оквиру едиције „Златни кључић“ сваке године се издаје књига одабраних песама добитника истоимене награде посвећене поезији за децу.
Since 2005 Festival has been publishing books within the scope of the “Meridians” edition. Every year a dozen bilingual editions of selected poems of foreign and Serbian poets are published. Besides the poems in Serbian and in one of the world languages, these editions also contain the poet’s bibliography, photograph, and a hand-written poem.
Од ове године у оквиру едиције „Златна струна“ добитнику истоимене награде биће објављена двојезична књига песама.
In the Festival “Anthology” two poems and the bibliography of every participating poet are published, as well as articles dedicated to poetry jubilees, and to Smederevo and the Festival itself.
