Phoebe Giannisi is the author of seven books of poetry, including Homerica (Kedros, 2009) and Rhapsodia (Gutenberg, 2016). A 2016 Humanities Fellow at Columbia University, Giannisi co-edits FRMK, a biannual journal of poetry, poetics, and visual arts. Her work lies at the border between poetry, performance, theory, and installation, investigating the connections between language, voice, and writing with body, place, and memory. She is an associate professor at the School of Architecture, University of Thessaly, and currently lives in Volos, Greece.
