BELIEVE IN YOUR OWN SPECIALNESS
INTERVIEW: NATALIA LOSKUTOVA
OCA Magazine: Tell us, please, about yourself and your creative activity / work
Natalia Loskutova: I started to write poems 4 years ago. It was a real necessity for expression my feelings on paper. My literary works found a broad response among readers. My compositions are published in the Russian Collections of the modern literature in 2020-2022.
My first book named “Christening” was written in Jordan in 2003.
I am an author of the Russian-English poems “Fate has a tough hand” and “Sieze the day” (2020).
I received recognition and became a member of the Russian Union of Writers. I am nominated as the Poet of the Year Award (2021). Besides, I was awarded by a Yesenin’s medal, Bunin’s medal, Dostoevsky’s medal and Medal of St. George.
It is a great pleasure and honour for me to be a part of the world of letters.
OCA: How did you choose your path and who is your role model in the creative
space or life?
NL: I don’t choose my path, but it chooses me. It is like a fortune. I can’t change it and it happens naturally. Sometimes I feel that poems are given me from on high and I just write down it.
My role in the creative space is to speak about love, friendship and the beauty of world to brighten up the life.
OCA: What is your main achievement in 2021-2022?
NL: The main achievement is the publication of my work in “The big book of prize winners” of the writing competition of the Union of Writers of Russia in 2021.
OCA: What is the main feature that makes you and your art/work unique?
NL: My poems are filled with real feelings, experiences and reflections on life. I create my works through the prism of a psychologist and an ordinary person. Everyone will find something of value in my pieces of writing. I believe that it deserves reader’s attention.
OCA: Tell us, please, about the events of the Eurasian Creative Guild (London) and projects that you have already taken part in and how does ECG influence your creativity and success in your work?
NL: First of all, I’d like to say that the projects of the Eurasian Creative Guild are brilliant and unique as it combines all people and nations around the world. Its atmosphere is very kind and friendly. It goes without saying that ECG influenced my success as a writer. The Guild gave birth to a great number of new projects and ideas. I’d like to take an advantage of the opportunity and express profound gratitude to Marat Akhmedjanov, Vice-Chairman of the Eurasian Creative Guild for his support in all projects of the ECG.
I have been a member of the Eurasian Creative Guild since 2019. My creativity works were published in the 2021 Almanac “Voices of Friends” (British Library) and in the Eurasian literary collection “Нить 3” in 2019. I am an active participant of all new events of the Guild.
OCA: What is your motivation and the main aim of your creativity?
NL: I’d like to present my literary works widely around the world. I use social networking on the web (especially – youtube.com) to share my creativity with readers. I download video in which I read my poems with the classical music or picturesque views. I enjoy this process. However, the main aim of my creativity is to become a professional writer.
OCA: What would you wish for the members of the Guild and other creative people, just starting their career?
NL: I wish for the members of the Guild to be honest and sincere with readers and they feel it for sure. The main thing is to develop yourself, to make progress, to realise new interesting projects and last but not least – to believe in their own specialness. Fortune favours brave and hard-working people.
