Mélanie Leblanc, sponsor of the candidacy

The Norman poet Mélanie Leblanc has joined the sponsors of the candidacy of Rouen Seine Normande 2028 as a European Capital of Culture.

Mélanie Leblanc was born in 1980 and lives in Normandie. She has published with Le Castor astral (Le Labyrinthe des jours), Les Venterniers (EphémérideDes étoiles filantesQuand mon cœurLes gens qui osentLe manifeste du Nous), with Cheyne Éditeur (Des falaises) and Les Éditions Derrière la Salle de Bain (a translation of poems by Karen Dalton, Presque je vole). Her solo show at the Musée Mallarmé includes visual, sound and video works: relier-musee-mallarme.com

She shares her poems during readings that can be musical, drawn or whispered beneath the Poem Dome which she has constructed. She teaches literature and cinema part-time.

I’m delighted to be a sponsor of the candidacy of Rouen Seine Normande 2028 as European Capital of Culture. This candidacy evokes in particular the cliffs of the Côte d’Albâtre, which form my poetic anchorage, my “true place”, in the words of the poet Yves Bonnefoy. The presence of nature in Normandie continues to be a deep source of inspiration. This nature weaves close connections between beings, the arts and eras – connections that I want to see constantly being extended.”
