Ilire Zajmi

Gazetare // Poete

Mendoj se është një nevojë e madhe të tregojmë historitë tona. Shkrimtarët e huaj mund të shkruajnë, por ata kurrë nuk mund të ndjejnë atë që ne kemi njerë. Kam kaluar nëpër kampe të refugjatëve, kam kaluar nëpër luftë, edhe e kam prekur me lëkurën time.

About Ilire

When Ilire Zajmi published her first book she was met with skepticism by readers who didn’t believe that a work of that quality could be published by a young woman. Two decades later, and with 10 published books and a career spent working in television journalism, Zajmi has eliminated all doubt, and established herself as an admired reporter and poet. “New generations of female writers are excellent, and they’re fighting this prejudice,” said Zajmi, who currently works as a professor. “They don’t fear, any more, to go openly and to write.”
