The culture of poetry both in India and Macedonia is not unknown to writers, readers and literature lovers. Recently. The Enchanting Verses announced its collaboration with the famous literary magazine of Macedonia named Stremez. The Enchanting Verses, based in West Bengal in India, has been consistent in publishing both young and renowned poets let alone recognizing their abilities. The Enchanting Poet title and award presented from this journal includes a few masters of contemporary poetry: Dimitris P Kraniotis, Stephen Gill, Dorin Popa, Darius Pacak, to name a few. The award has also been presented to people for their untiring efforts to popularize poetry among the masses such as to Ariadne Sawyer and Patricia Prime.
On the other hand, Stremez needs no introduction being the oldest print literary magazine of Macedonia, publishing since 1954. "Stremež" is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Macedonia and is published by National Institution - Cultural Centre "Marko Cepenkov". Over the years, it has published several world-renowned writers such as Pablo Neruda, Andrey Voznesensky, Eugenio Montale, Wislawa Szymborska, Zbigniew Herbert, and Debora Vaarandi.
The collaboration of a 21st century e-journal with a 20th century print journal is surely going to unfurl new tastes in poetry, presenting a mix of European and Indian style of writing and editing. The exchange in the selections made for publications can help many traditional writers to be visible online and many online writers to be presented in print.
