This panel discussion with Gabija Grušaitė, Luna Miguel, Ursula Andkjær Olsen, and Vladimir Poleganov is moderated by novelist YZ Chin.

Afflicted Bodies and Disturbed Lands: A Poetic Approach: panel discussion with Jacek Dehnel, Esther Kinsky, Luna Miguel and Ursula Andkjær Olsen, moderator TBC. Four exciting poets from different countries and generations share their exploration of bodies or lands as sites in which the personal and the political are vividly, and sometimes brutally, inscribed.

Luna Miguel (b. 1990) is a poet from Spain, who works as a literary editor for PlayGround Mag. She is the author of five poetry collections, including Los estómagos (2015) and El arrecife de las sirenas (2017). Her work, which celebrates the body in all its gruesomeness and glory, has become known to English speakers via her online presence and involvement with the Alt Lit movement. Available in English are two bilingual editions: Stomachs (2016), translated by Luis Silva, and Bluebird and Other Tattoos (2012) –both published by Scrambler Books. Her first novel, El funeral de Lolita (2018), was just published by Lumen/Penguin Random House.
