An International Forum of Young Poetesses has today kicked off in Baku. The event is co- organized by the "Great Silk Way" International Youth Union, the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Youth Foundation under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The forum is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of national leader Heydar Aliyev.
The forum is aimed at building a common space for young and talented artists with a non-mainstream background within the Silk Road.
The forum will include thematic sessions to facilitate mutual understanding and raise awareness on the issues and obstacles young writers face in their local realities.
The poetesses from 20 countries take part at the forum.
The event will end on Sunday.
