Athena Farrokhzad is a poet, playwright, translator and teacher of creative writing at Biskops Arnö. She has written three poetry books, "Vitsvit", "Trado" (together with Svetlana Cârstean) and "I rörelse". Among the authors she has translated to Swedish are Jacqueline Woodson, Adrienne Rich and Marguerite Duras. Together with Kristofer Folkhammar she has also selected the poems in the book "Berör och förstör" – an anthology with poetry for young people. Athena Farrokhzad will speak about her writing and poetry and read her own poems.
