Charlotte Van den Broeck (Belgium, 1991) has published two critically acclaimed books of poetry, Kameleon (2015) and Nachtroer (2019), and has been awarded the Herman De Coninck Debut prize and the triannual Paul Snoek Prize. On stage she explores a performative approach to poetry as a dramatic form. She has performed internationally, including at Poesiefestival Berlin, Nacht van de Poëzie Utrecht, Woordfees Stellenbosch, Ledbury Poetry Festival and Poetry on the Road Bremen. Her books have been translated into Spanish, French, Serbian, German and English (with Bloodaxe Books). In October 2019 she made her prose debut with Waagstukken, a collection of essays on architects and suicide.
Charlotte Van der Broeck's appearance at StAnza 2020 is part of New Dutch Writing, presented by the Dutch Foundation for Literature, and is also supported by Flanders Literature.
