Behind the Words
Christine has been writing poetry her whole life. A lot of her poetry resolves around finding joy in everyday things or exploring her intercultural identity. She writes a lot while traveling or moving, and the changes in perspective this brings is something she strives to capture in her poetry.
As a fun fact: In University, Christine slammed poetry at spoken word events. While she no longer slams at public events, some of her poetry is clearly still written with the intention to be read out loud.
Christine is currently working on two poetry collections. You will find a selection of her poetry below and on Instagram.
The Poetry-by-Post series features a selection of original poems written by Christine Nikander. Christine originally wrote these poems on her century-old typewriter. The postcards are a reprint of the original typewritten piece.
