Ella Zeltserman

Ella Zelsterman came to Edmonton as a refuge from the Soviet Union in 1980, with only a few English words in her vocabulary. Throughout her life poetry has given refuge, stirred her imagination, and allowed for deep self-expression. Much of her work grows out of her experiences as an émigré to Canada. It took many years before she began to write poetry in English, for the language has to percolate through you, sip through your pores, before you can write in it.

She has been published in the Home Away Anthology, Sun and Snow Anthology and Poetica Magazine (USA). Her first full-length poetry collection Small Things Left Behind will be published by University of Alberta Press in 2014.
