Marija Stepanova, born in Moscow in 1972, is a poet, essayist, and journalist. She is the author of ten poetry collections and two essay books, translated into many languages, and a recipient of several Russian and international literary awards, including the prestigious Andrey Bely Prize. Her opinion pieces on the current political and media landscape in Russia have been published in Russian, English and German. Her book Pamiati pamiati came out in Russian in 2017, to wide acclaim, and received the Big Book Prize in 2018. The book was published in German (2018), and is forthcoming in English, French, Italian, Chinese and other languages.
