English!

Hi and welcome!

My name is Lovisa Appelkvist and I’m a Swedish spoken word artist that been on stage for about 11 years. I’ve been competing in poetry slam for over 10 years and won the Swedish nationals twice, as part of Team Malmö and Team Moriska Paviljongen, and have one silver from Team Malmö as well.

I hold workshops in creative writing as well as in metaphore wrestling, spoken word and writing with transmedia in mind. I have my own company, and also work a little on the college university in Malmö.

Right now I have a novel that has been sent in to several publishers, and a poetry collection waiting for approval as well.

I write both in English and Swedish and would love to perform abroad so if you feel like having a Swedish spoken word-artist at your event, please feel free to contact me.

I’m bookable in Australia between the 13 Nov and 10 Dec.

I write text that range from the emotional to the political, even thought I’d like to claim that the emotional and personal also is political.

Please feel free to contact me or send me an e-mail on lovisa(dot)appelqvist(at)gmail(dot)com.
