about us

harana poetry is the online magazine for poets writing in English as a second or parallel language. The editors are Kostya Tsolakis and Romalyn Ante, and Iulia David is acting as deputy poetry editor. Shalini Sengupta was reviews editor in 2021 as part of the Ledbury Poetry Critics programme. Alice Hiller was reviews editor from November 2018 to March 2020.

Kostya and Romalyn are both poets who write in English as their second language. Their mother tongues are Greek and Tagalog respectively. They created harana poetry in 2018 as a platform for poets who write in English as a second language, or use additional languages and dialects in combination with English in their work. The mission of harana poetry is to resist singleness of tongue and thought, initiate creative conversations and enlarge possibilities.
