Kätlin Kaldmaa

Kätlin Kaldmaa (1970) is an Estonian poet, prose writer and translator. After her debut poetry collection Larii-laree was published back in 1996, it took her twelve years to publish her second book. In the late 1990s and 2000s, she focused on translating, including her great favourite Jeanette Winterson. However, in the second decade of this century, she veered back towards her original works – her best-known work is the book of poems Armastuse tähestik from 2012, the experimental novel Islandil ei ole liblikaid (2013), the collection of stories Väike terav nuga (2014) and the children’s book Halb tüdruk on jumala hea olla (2016). All these books have been nominated for Estonian Cultural Endowment literary prizes. Kaldmaa has also stood out as a cultural promoter, working as the President of Estonian PEN, re-established in 2010, and from 2016, as the international secretary of PEN International.
