Ulrikka S. Gernes was born in 1965 in Sweden of Danish parents. At the age of twenty-two she moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, already a published and highly acclaimed poet. Her first collection, Natsværmer (Moth), was published in Denmark in 1984, when she was eighteen years old. Since then she has published an additional ten collections, all of them received gratefully in the Danish press. She is also the author of two books for children, as well as many short stories, songs, and various contributions to literary anthologies, art catalogues, magazines, newspapers and Danish National radio.
In today's Poetry Cure, we chat with award-winning poet Patrick Friesen about his book Songen (Mother Tongue Publishing), a collection of poems each one sentence long and joined by commas; the likeness of Middle English and Low German; and music as inspiration.
