Deniz S. lives and works in Toronto. She studies English and Philosophy at York University. Her poetry contemplates the nervous and slack-boweled human condition indicative of late-capitalism by exploring the themes of alienation, addiction, and the perverse. She is influenced by the cut-up technique of Burroughs and the trenchant intensity of Dickinson. Deniz is working on a poetry collection called “The Mighty Anguish”, which will see its completion in 2017.
