Born in Athens, in 1979, Krystalli is a Greek writer, poet, and translator.
She's studied philosophy, politics, and creative writing in the UK and has also worked and lived in Oslo and Istanbul.
Apart from Greek, Norwegian, and English, she speaks French and some Turkish (enough to hold decent conversations with imaginative taxi drivers in Istanbul).
She contributes articles and commentaries to Greek and English-language magazines and, in Norway, to Agenda Magasin and, sometimes, Dagsavisen.
She was awarded with the State Literary Award for Best Poetry 2018.
