Kornélia Deres and Márton Simon, the new Hungarian ambassadors of Panodyssey

In autumn of 2022, Pro Progressione in collaboration with Könyves Magazin have launched a project to promote the Panodyssey platform in Hungary. The main objective of Panodyssey is to create a community site where users can directly share their texts - which can be fiction or non-fiction - and monetize it as well.

Panodyssey is a social networking site for the international literature community where users can make money by sharing their writings. In this way, writers can both gain new readers and cooperate with fellows writers to create shared publications. Moreover, readers can form new communities based on their interests. Panodyssey is a French initiated project. The Creative Room European Alliance consortium aims to bring Panodyssey to other parts of Europe. This international programme brings together organisations from more than 9 European countries, and from autumn 2022. Hungary is one of them.

A total of six popular Hungarian authors will take part in the project as ambassadors of Panodyssey, to show the potential of the platform to the people interested in publishing, whether they are professionals or amateurs. The first Hungarian ambassadors of Panodyssey were Anita Moskát and Péter Závada, who represented the project between October 2022 and February 2023. The second ambassadors were Réka Borda and Tibor Nóé Kiss. The third ambassadors are announced now: Kornélia Deres and Márton Simon.

Kornélia Deres is a poet, theatre and cultural historian, assistant professor, and Bolyai-Scholarship researcher at ELTE University in Hungary. She completed her undergraduate and doctoral studies at ELTE.

Since 2003, she has been publishing poetry, prose, and essays in prominent international and national journals. Her poems have been translated into English, German, Polish, Czech, Serbian, Romanian and Bulgarian. She is also the author of two academic monographs and the co-editor of five volumes of essays. She has led several literary and theatre talent workshops and was awarded the "ELTE Promising Researcher" prize in 2022 and the Baumgarten Memorial Prize in 2023.
