Elona Culiq was born in 1986 in Shkoder, Albania. She studied Psychology at the University of Shkoder and Tirana. She lives and has written from her hometown trying to keep her poetry pure from the misery of the reality.
She discovered her passion to write after she left piano, in the childhood. For the first time she published in a literature anthology in 2010.
From then, her work was also published in different national and international literary anthologies including; Poeteka, Aleph, Helicon, Milosao,“500 poeti Dispersi” – Dedicato Giacomo Leopardi, “The Gesture and the Genesis”, “Storie di Carte” etc. She constantly participates in Poetry festivals, Art performances, and Cultural activities in Albania and abroad. Alongside numerous activities, in March 2017 she represented Albania in Leipzig Book Fair, followed up in April, in Italy, where she performs poetry alongside a visual Italian artist. Mediterranea 18 – Young Artist Biennale, was another experience where she could perform beside a contemporary dancer the project “I, the City”. She works in a Cultural Youth Center where she hosts a monthly Open Reading Night Program. Currently she is working for her second poetry book, which will be funded by the Ministry of Culture in Albania.
