Cia Rinne

Cia Rinne is a poet, author and artist living in Berlin. She studied philosophy and languages in Frankfurt, Helsinki and Athens.

Her books have been published in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Switzerland and Canada, most recently l’usage du mot (2017), sentences and I am very miserable about sentences (2019). She wrote the libretto (Trial&Eros), which will premiere in November 2019, for the opera in Copenhage
