Angela Costi

Angela Costi is also known as Aggeliki Kosti among the Cypriot diaspora, which is her heritage. She is the author of four poetry collections including Honey and Salt (Five Islands Press, 2007) and Lost in Mid-Verse (Owl Publishing, 2014). An award from the National Languages Board in 1995, enabled her to study Ancient Greek drama in Greece. She received funding from the Australia Council for the Arts to work in Japan on an international collaboration involving her poetry, which she documented in a series of essays and performance text, A Nest of Cinnamon.
Recent funding from City of Melbourne, has enabled her to work on her current poetry manuscript titled: An Embroidery of Old Maps and New, which is due for release next year.
She manages ‘Angela Costi Poetics’ – a Facebook page dedicated to reflecting on the poetry writing process and its intersections with contemporary issues, such as migration and social justice. She works in the social justice and human rights sectors.
