An Interview with Margrit Dahm

The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.

We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with the  author, Margrit Dahm. Margrit is a German-born author based in London. A prolific writer whose collected works include adult fiction and poetry collections, February 2018 will mark her debut as a children's fiction author with Framed. Margrit has written, beginning with poetry, since her time at the University of London where she studied German literature. First writing in her native tongue, her work caught the attention of German publisher Karin Fischer Verlag with whom she has published two books – Die verlorene Stunde (2012), a poetry compilation, and  herbstzeitlose: Ein Begleiter für das Jahr (2016). Margrit released her first English language book in 2016 and continues to write books in English.
