मैटे मोस्ट्रप /Mette Moestrup
A resident of Copenhagen, Mette Moestrup made her debut as a poet in 1998 with Tatoveringer (Tatoos), which was followed by Golden Delicious (2002) and Kingsize (2006). In 2009, she published the novel-collage, Jævnet med Jorden (Leveled to the Ground). She has also written two books for children, Ti Grønne Fingre (Ten Green Fingers) (2006) and Hvad Siger Sneugleungen Ulla?(What Does Tula the Baby Snowy Owl Say?) (2009). She has participated in many poetry festivals – especially in Norway and Sweden, but also in Germany, Estonia, Island, Finland and Greenland – and her work has been translated into Swedish, Finnish, Greenlandic, German, Spanish, and English.
Besides writing books, she also works with mailart and netart, such as Letterproject M.M. – in Danish Brevprojekt M.M. (www.afsnitp.dk/galleri/mm/home.html) – and the collective, Anonymous Text (www.kollektivt-anonymt.dk). She has worked with the performative aspects of reading for an audience, and recently started collaborating with a musician, forming a band called She’s a Show.
