Czech's Jitka Pruchova says Don't Leave the EUOIA

Czech Republic’s Jitka Průchová (1978-) says Don't Leave the EUOIA (European Union Of Imaginary Authors) (or the EU).

Průchová wrote Poems Ekphrastic and Plastic while resident in Prague, where she worked in insurance. Since going freelance as a poet she has published five more books. She is currently writing a lengthy poem-biography of the artist Toyen (Marie Čermínová) of which the third instalment, Artificialism, was published in 2013 by Stěhovací Kabinet.

If Britain votes to leave the EUOIA on 23rd June, Robert Sheppard, the British representative of British imaginary authors, will have to be excluded from his own anthology, EUOIA, which he is conducting and collaboratively writing with other writers; at the very least he will be moved to the Appendices with Frisland’s Hróbjartur Ríkeyjarson af Dvala (whom he created with Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl). To find out more or less about the EUOIA check the EUOIA website which is still live at, and there are multiple posts on the subject of the EUOIA on this blog (use the keyword EUOIA to see them all displayed, and then check).
