  • About Me

    Lena Vanelslander swam many waters. History, Comparative Cultural Analysis, Languages, Mythology, Literature, Poetry, too many to sum up. After a life of tribulations the turning point came in her mid twenties: she started to write actively poetry in English. Her melancholic and darkminded nature colour her poems to an individual signature in both time and space. Poems got published in the Stray Branch, Savage Manners, the Delinquent and The Sylvan Echo, Negative Suck, Disenthralled, ... Her first book of poetry, written with Marilyn Campiz, Quills of Fire, has appeared in November 2009 (PublishAmerica). Currently she's editor-in-chief for Gloom Cupboard http://www.gloomcupboard.com.

    Why do you write?

    To ventilate both good and bad. But to be honest? I still have no clue why I write.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Leonard Cohen, Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare, Kafka, Orwell, Hesse, ...

    Slaap, The Book of Longing, The Importance of being Earnest ...

    Hi, Lena. Thank you for your kind comment about my work and your fave of "Wahrheit und Dichtung." I see you're editor of Gloom Cupboard. I had a poem appear there in 2009. It's really quite a different magazine now! Excellent work! Congratulations!
