For more information about our Between the Lines summer camp, go to bit.ly/btl24. Today’s guest is Senka Marić. We discussed how choices a writer makes in the narration of a text can affect the experience of the reader, negotiating with the desires of readers and publishers without compromising one's writing, and Marić's work on the literary publication strane.ba, as well as her beginnings as a reader and writer, among other topics.

Bio: Senka Marić (poet, novelist, essayist, editor; Bosnia-Herzegovina) is the author of three books of poetry, most recently UNTIL THE NEXT DEATH (2016) and the novels BODY KINTSUGI (2018) and GRAVITIES (2021), translated into English and several other languages. The former received the 2018 Meša Selimović Award for best novel in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia, and Montenegro, the English PEN Translates Award 2022, and was shortlisted for the 2023 EBRD Literature Prize; GRAVITIES won the 2022 Štefica Cvek Award for feminist writing. Marić often participates in European literary events, teaches writing workshops, and is the editor-in-chief of the online literary magazine Strane.ba. Her participation was made possible by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the US Department of State.
