About Me

My photo
Award-winning poet and short story writer from Cyprus. Published three collections of poetry: The Voice at the Top of the Stairs (2001), Cleft in Twain (2003) and 25 Ways to Kiss a Man (2004). Cleft in Twain was cited by The Guardian in an article on the literature of the new European Union member states in 2004. My work has won prizes and commendations in various international competitions: among others, in the Commonwealth Short Story Competition, the Féile Filíochta International Poetry Competition (Ireland) and the Binnacle International Ultra-Short Competition at the University of Maine at Machias, USA. In addition to a book of short stories, Ledra Street (2006), I have had work published online and in journals internationally. My work was included in Best European Fiction 2011 (Dalkey Archive Press) and in the poetry anthology Being Human (Bloodaxe Books, 2011). Girl, Wolf, Bones – a new book of fairy tale inspired microfiction – was published in 2011.

It's been too long...

Oh, my poor little blog. I haven't visited you for a while. I hope you don't hold it against me. I've been so busy having fun - and sometimes not having fun.

Here are some of the fun things I've done since I last wrote here:

I've been to Stockholm.
I've written a short story which has been accepted in a "Best of..." anthology, but more about that later.
I've appeared in BluePrintReview.
Three haiku-esque poems have appeared in UnFold:
Seagulls, Untitled and Swallow.
I've been interviewed by FictionDaily.
Thanks to the editors of the above: Dorothee Lang, Rose Auslander and David Backer!

Hope to be back soon.
