Eleni Sikelianos

Born in California on Walt Whitman’s birthday, Eleni Sikelianos is a poet, writer, and a “master of mixing genres”. She grew up in earshot of the ocean, in small coastal towns near Santa Barbara, and has since lived in San Francisco, New York, Paris, Athens (Greece), Boulder (Colorado), and Providence. Deeply engaged with ecopoetics, her work takes up urgent concerns of environmental precarity and ancestral lineages. Your Kingdom is her tenth book of poetry, riding alongside two memoir-verse-image-novels.
