Today was a poetry evening in Segezha online. I thank the organizers – L.M. Rigoev, director of the library, and E.Yu. Gusev, director of the PetrSU Interdistrict Resource Center in Segezha. Svetlana Zakharchenko, Lydia Kovalevskaya and members of the Segezha poetry club “Revelation” took part in the creative meeting dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Karelia. It’s great that new opportunities for virtual communication allow people from different cities to meet and turn to the poetry of different authors. I did not have time to complete the meeting in Segezha when I received an invitation from Monchegorsk to also meet with readers in an online format. Now, in my editorial office of the Sever magazine, I can speak to the whole of Karelia and Russia.
