Wioletta Greg.

Wioletta Grzegorzewska – is a Polish-British writer living in United Kingdom since 2006. She publishes under the pen name: Wioletta Greg.

Currently, she lives in Lewes on the river Ouse. She is an accomplished poet, shortlisted for the Griffin Poetry Prize. Swallowing Mercury, her first prose book translated to English by Eliza Marciniak, was longlisted for the 2017 the Man Booker International Prize

Greg’s tales are rich in colour and texture, facts and magic. They possess a lyrical prose offering; a picturesque depiction of a country both lost in time, yet still modern.

Wioletta’s latest novel, Wolf River, recounts her journey during the pandemic and her stay in a British women’s refuge, where she lived with her daughter for almost a year. Her novels have been translated into Catalan, English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Serbian and Lithuanian.
