    About Writer

    She was born in Athens. She has been moving between Greek, English and Norwegian (sometimes Turkish too). She studied philosophy at the LSE and at King’s College London, and Creative Writing at the UEA, in Norwich. She currently works as the Rights Manager for Greece’s oldest publishing house and studies for a PhD in Media and Communications at Bournemouth University.
    Her two poetry collections, London-Istanbul (2009) and Urban Ruins (2013) (both from Polis Publishers) were critically acclaimed and many of their poems have been translated into English and Slovenian. She writes in both Greek and English and her poetry has appeared in Poetry Review, Maintenant, Poetry International, The Ofi Press, and, most recently, in Austerity Measures: The New Greek Poetry, ed. by Karen Van Dyck, for Penguin.
    She’s translated Jo Nesbø, Gunnar Staalesen, Ketil Bjørnstad, Ingar Johnsrud, Izzet Celasin, Melanie Wallace, Robin Jenkins, Frank O’Hara, Adrienne Rich, Michael Symmons Roberts, Christos Ikonomou, and - with the help of others - Orhan Veli Kanık, Yavuz Bülent Bakiler, and Attila İlhan. Her latest poetry collection (working title: Damascus) is due to appear in 2017.
