Poems

///

Caroline Simon (1997) suit des études d’arts appliqués à Strasbourg. Sa poésie se veut libre, contestataire, acidulée. En 2016, elle a obtenu le premier prix du concours Jeune Printemps (Lu). Depuis, elle publie de manière aléatoire dans la revue On peut se permettre. Elle a participé à la soirée de clôture de Poema à la Kulturfabrik au Luxembourg. Dans le cadre du Printemps poétique transfrontalier 2019, elle a représenté le Luxembourg en tant que poète en résidence et, aux côtés de quatre autres poètes et un musicien, elle a parcouru la Grande Région pour une tournée de lectures. Un recueil des poèmes lus pendant cet évènement (Die Schienbeine der Stadt, 2019) a paru dans la parasitenpresse (Cologne). En 2020, ces derniers poèmes paraissent dans Anthology of Young Luxemburgish Poets, un project greco-luxembourgeois.

During the 2019 Printemps poétique transfrontalier, she represented Luxembourg as a poet in residence and, with four other poets and one musician, she crossed the Grande Region for a reading tour.
