“Hyperpoem” project: An idea of Alexander Kabishev

Επιμέλεια: Εύα Πετροπούλου Λιανού

The idea of the HYPERPOEM project originated in the summer of 2020. Then, as part of the work of the DEMO GOG group, it was planned to create a large Internet poem with the participation of several dozen authors. However, at that time the project did not receive proper coverage and attention from poets and their readers, so it was suspended for a while. Everything changed in the fall of 2021. When the number of band members approached 10,000, people began to ask about the project and express a desire to take part in it. In light of those events, the project was revived and restarted!

Project idea

The idea of the project is very simple – to connect as many authors as possible within the framework of a given topic: "International cooperation and friendship" to set a world record in the Guinness Book in the direction of: The largest poem in the history of mankind by the number of participating authors (accompanying: by the number of languages in one work). To participate, each author needs to: write a quatrain within a given topic (in their native language or English) and fill out a participant questionnaire. The questionnaire is designed to protect copyright and at the same time is proof that the participant is a real author.


Now more than 1600 authors have taken part in HYPERPOEM (for a record, you need to connect at least 1500). What deserves special attention are authors from more than 50 countries and most of them offered quatrains in their native language!

We succeed:


Now the main task is to collect 1,500 quatrains by the authors, with the subsequent obtaining of a world record, but HYPERPOEM will not stop there. There are already plans to work in the second half of 2022 and continue to connect the authors after the recognition of the record. In addition, after obtaining a world record, HYPERPOEM is planned to be presented as a monument of world literature in Unesco.


Although the current situation in the world remains tense, both against the background of political differences between large and developed countries and regional conflicts, projects such as HYPERPOEM allow authors from different countries to get to know each other, exchange creativity and establish universal friendship on planet Earth. And even though it may seem insignificant now, great things begin with small things. We are for world peace!
