Hi and welcome,


My name is Maria, I'm a writer and journalist. On this website, you can read my published poems, my project the LP, and my journalistic work.


At the moment, I am working on a novel about Russian high school, photography, memory, and love.


I'm interested in (de-)construction of personal narratives and identities and in the ways those are observed by others. I'm fascinated by different ideas that are related to being an object of seeing: visibility / opacity, feeling seen, observer effect, etc.


You can find my formal bio here, and you can reach me at
