Ilire Zajmi

novinarka // pesnikinja

Smatram da postoji jaka želja da se naše priče ispričaju. Inostrani spisatelji mogu pisati o tome ali nikada neće osetiti ono što smo mi. Bila sam u izbegličkom kampu, I sve osetila na svojoj koži.

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.”
