DEAR VAGABOND

Last summer I had the great pleasure of attending the Sozopol Fiction Seminar, an annual program sponsored by the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation that brings together five writers working in English and five working in Bulgarian, as well as editors, publishers, and translators from all over the world, to foster an international dialogue on writing. I was invited to offer my perspective on Poets & Writers as well as the wider world of literary magazines, and for six days I got to know some extremely talented writers from Bulgaria, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States while learning about the literary culture of Bulgaria – first in the capital city of Sofia and then in Sozopol, an ancient town on the Black Sea. Truly remarkable.

RUSE: OLD EUROPE'S SPIRIT ON THE DANUBE

When looking for a piece of Bulgaria which is full with character, Ruse takes one of the first places. The biggest Bulgarian city on the Danube is the richest throve of fin-de-siècle architecture in the whole country, beating by far Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna and Burgas. It is also the home of some of the most interesting museums in Bulgaria, and in it environs are the remains of a well preserved medieval fortress and UNESCO-listed rock monasteries.
