Dejan Koban

Dejan Koban, born in 1979 in Jesenice, is a poet. His first collection of poems, Butterflies under pressure (2008) was self-published. In 2013, he published his second book of poems, Razporeditve (Arrangements). His poems appeared in various literary reviews, such as Idiot and Poetikon, as well as on a CD, as a part of a project Rockers sing poets. With his band, Nevemnevem, he interprets his own poetry. He enjoys reading Allen Ginsberg and Katja Plut. At Metelkova, Ljubljana, he organizes literary readings and an international festival Mlade rime (Young Rhymes) with another poet, Veronika Dintinjana. During those literary readings he was used to say “Poetry is cool”, a sentence that became almost proverbial. Recently, his credo has changed into  “What is essential is poetry”.
