ANDREA HEIBERGI started writing in English in the autumn of 2006. After a couple of years, in spring 2008, I sent a sample of my work to a British editor firm and asked for a critique – and the response was: “There’re errors sprinkled all over the place but there’s actually a story here.” This was my first review.
I was so lucky to reach an American editor who edited my stories and she also had me introduced to Poetic Asides. There I met Andrea Porter from the UK who helped me get published. Last year Salt Publishing created “Next Stop: Sejer Island,” which is a collection of my short stories.
So from being a completely unknown Danish writer who writes in English, I become the Andrea Heiberg, the second Danish author who writes this kind of fiction directly in English – Karen Blixen being the first.
Here, on Poetic Bloomings, I enjoy poetry and the pulse of worldwide life.
