Ollie Cowley

Ollie is a freelance writer currently living in Athens. Her writing has appeared in the Oxford Review of Books, Oxon Review, JAR and Ash. She studied Classics and English at the University of Oxford, where she first encountered Seferis. Since, she has spent much time with Seferis, Cavafy, Ristsos and Liddell & Scott. To her, translation is not simply an act of conversion, but a practice in seeing. It is in it's moments of "ἄῗδρις" (the ancient greek term for 'un-seeing' or 'unknowing') that translation most excites her.
