Literature at the Cultural Centre ZAMEK means first of all two major literary events: The International Story-Telling Festival and The Science Fiction Days.The first one is organised in the very centre of the city, with ZAMEK being its producer. Its chief asset are well-known and highly respected – by readers and critics alike – writers, who come to Wrocław to participate in the event. The International Story-Telling Festival gathers the most famous, original, but also new and promising creators of short epic forms. The Science Fiction Days have been held by the Centre since 2004. Their programme includes various aspects of science fiction, such as games, displays, performances, presentations, workshops or tournaments. One of the most important components of the event is the literature block, encompassing meetings with writers, editorial staff of SF magazines and publishing houses, competitions and literary workshops. Quite independently of the above we also organise – on a one-off basis or as part of thematic series – meetings with writers (e.g. Marek Krajewski, Jacek Żakowski and Henryk Suchar) and known personalities who dabble in writing on an occasional basis, e.g. Andrzej Strzelecki.We also organise two literary competitions: the Regional Preliminaries for the National Declamation Contest for students of upper secondary schools and adults, and the ‘Dzieci Mają Głos’ (Children Should be Heard) Declamation Contest for children and students of primary and lower secondary (middle) schools. Literature is also present at the Centre in the form of – most frequently – theatrical adaptations, which are staged in the performance hall. Recently we have been able to see ‘Gargantua and Pantagruel’ directed by Piotr Bikont and ‘Trzy rozmowy z Panem Herbertem’ (Three Conversations with Mister Herbert), performed by the Studio Poetry Theatre.
