TAK Erzinger

Poet

Author's Bio

TAK Erzinger is an American/Swiss poet and artist with a Colombian background.

 

Her debut poetry collection, Found: Between the Trees

(http://www.greybordersbooks.jigsy.com/TAK-Erzinger) is a chronicle about a life interrupted by mental illness. Its poems are a reflection of how love, nature and hiking nurtured and fostered an injured soul suffering from acute-childhood trauma and PTSD, leading to a path of redemption. This collection takes the reader on a journey of love, loss, forgiveness and healing.

 

Her poetry has been published by The Curlew, The Cirrus Poetry Review, The Beautiful Space Journal, The Mojave He[art] Review, The Origami Poems Project and The Rising Phoenix Review and many more. Last year TAK began a walking pilgrimage on the St. Jacob’s Way through Switzerland. Her most recent interviews can be found at www.swisspats.com and http://worldradio.ch/article/take-erzinger-poetry-and-pilgrimage-on-st-jacobs-way/

She lives in a Swiss valley with her husband and cat.
