Ida Börjel has been an acclaimed voice in Swedish poetry since the publication of her multi-award-winning debut collection, Sond/Probe, in 2004. Her writing is conceptual and radical, absorbing and re-inventing language from social discourses in order to question and expose different forms of power and authority. Her book-length poem Ma was nominated in 2014 for Sweden's most prestigious literary award, the August Prize. Ida’s poetry has been translated into over twenty languages.
