More > Contemporary Writers of Poland is a unique anthology, a collection of poems, short stories and memoirs, dedicated to aviation. The writers try to go beyond the stratosphere, to look through the eyes of poetry – as pilots, as navigators. They approach alien planets that may evoke our fears but also allow us to question the mundane and ponder our existence. They go into a state of poetic weightlessness, which becomes a unique creative challenge. Many of the works in the collection refer to dramatic moments from history, in which – inspired by universal values – aviators played a significant and heroic role.
