I was born in Serbia in 1972 and have been living in Germany since 2002. I graduated at the Anglistics Department of Belgrade University and also studied English Literature at the University of Brunswick, Germany. I have been working as an English trainer at language institutes in Brunswick and have been translating prose and poetry for various literature magazines in my home country.
So far I have published three books of poetry in Serbian, my mother tongue :
- Povremeni prekidi sa zujanjem, Gradska bibilioteka „Vladislav Petković Dis“, Čačak, 2000.
- Sitne iznutrice, Brankovo kolo, Sremski Karlovci, 2002.
- Džibra, Brankovo kolo, Sremski Karlovci, 2006.
- Otvoreni prelomi, currently in print
The book titles translate into English as : Occasional Interruptions with Buzzing, Petty Innards, Husks and Open Fractures, respectively. The books won two national prizes for poetry and two first prizes for poetry written in English by a non-native speaker at the annual university competition in Brunswick, Germany.
