Dariusz Sośnicki (c) Jakub Golis

Dariusz Sośnicki, born in 1969 in Kalisz, Poland, lives in Poznań and is a poet and editor. Sośnicki’s poetry is a preceisely-observed journey through a country, the countryside and some curious landscapes which is constantly being continued with just short interludes at home. Freedom of movement in time and space gives the thoroughly reasonable lyrical I a counterweight which encounters unpredictable feelings and is driven by a language which keeps suddenly behaving in unforeseen ways.
In 1994 Sośnicki was awarded the Czas Kultury (Time for Culture) Prize for his work, and in 2002 he was nominated for the Paszport Polityki Prize. From 1994 to 1996 he edited the literary journal Nowy Nurt. From 2005 to 2013 he headed the Polish prose section of the W.A.B. publishing house in Warsaw.
