Hello, welcome in Groningen and welcome at NOORDWOORD! We are the association for literary events in Groningen. We organize festivals for poetry and literature, and offer the most complete and up to date online literary event calendar for Groningen and its surroundings.


Although for many festivals and readings, Dutch will be the main language, we are always on the lookout for those activities that are accessible for you, as an international visitor or inhabitant of Groningen.

Here below, you’ll soon find more information on what we do and how you can reach us. Or go directly to the literary agenda to see our pick of internationally accessible literary events coming up in Groningen.
