Sabahudin Hadzialic, distinguished writer of the Balkans
FRIDAY, MAY 30, 2014 BY PETER TASE
In early January, 2014, I had a memorable conversation with Sabahudin Hadzialic, a distinguished writer from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Editor in Chief of Diogen: prokultur, a magazine published in Sarajevo. Hadzialic is a distinguished professor at the International University of Travnik in Bosnia and Herzegovia.
Hadzialic shared some of his thoughts on literature, ethnic divide, cultural understanding, poetry as well as global initiatives.
For Hadzialic. today’s literature in Bosnia and Herzegovina faces many challenges, one of them is related to the quality of writting: “It is not difficult to write. It is difficult to know how to write…and everybody can write a poetry but only few can write a poem.” Additionally, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, it is difficult to find a global artist and writer.
