On December 1 at 6 pm join Literary Club of National Library of Udmurt Republic to meet poet and journalist Olga Denisova (the meeting will take place at the Republic’s Library for Children and the Youth (Izhevsk, Pushkinskaya St., 200).


Olga Ivanovna Denisova – member of Union of Russian Journalists (since 1989), honored journalist of the Udmurt Republic. Olga Ivanovna graduated from the Faculty of Biology and Chemistry of the Udmurt State University, later specialized in ecology at Leningrad Institute of Technology. This educational background determined thematic preoccupation of her journalistic work - for many years she has been writing an ecological column in the newspaper “Udmurtskaya Pravda” (since 2000 she has been also writing a literary column there). O. Denisova is the winner of S. Zalygin’s contest “for active involvement in raising ecological awareness of Russians”, winner of All-Russian contest “Ecology of Russia”, winner of the award “for the best serial publication in regional press”.


In student years Olga Denisova first tried writing poems and these poems were published in the newspaper “Komsomolets Udmurtii”. In 1981-1984 she attended V. Emelyanov’s and G. Ivantsov’s literary studio “Raduga” run by the Union of Udmurt Writers. Her works have been published in many central periodicals ( “Avrora”, “Krestyanka”, “Ogonek”) and poetry almanacs. Olga Denisova’s poems were also included in “The Anthology of Peoples of Russia” the two-volume edition published in 2004 by Moscow publishing house “PIK”.


Olga Denisova’s first author’s collection – “The House on Earth” – was published by “Udmurtia” publishing house in 1987. Her latest book of verse – “Poems” – was published in 2013. The book is an outcome of many years of poem writing experience revealing a convincing lyrical character. The preface written by poet and journalist Gerasim Ivantsov ends with such words: “We can cite Olga Denisova’s poems and admire her ability to transform things, plants and animals, each event and each phenomenon of life into poetic imagery on and on and on. I really hope that this book will mark a significant milestone in literary life of Russian poetry here in Udmurtia and in the author’s life as well”.


Guests and participants of the upcoming meeting of the Literary Club will have a chance to learn more about life and work of the poetess and hear her poems recited by herself. Denisova’s many friends and admirers will share lots of feedback on her poems.
