Saskia Handley; Saskia Priftis; Poems in North East Review and The Missing Slate



Some outstanding poems by Saskia

"Saskia Priftis (Saskia Handley) was born in Sierra Leone and educated in England, but has lived the greater part of her life in Greece. She was co-editor of Poetry Greece, and has translated a book of Greek poems, Gentle Hour by Maria Stamati into English. Her poem ‘The Woman Poet’ was on the BBC Radio Four programme and two of her poems were recently published in Askew Poetry Journal. She lives on the island of Corfu in Greece".

I'm looking forward to Saskia's first collection.

Update: Another brilliant poem - "AKHMATOVA’S NIGHTS"
