Sus títulos más recientes, editados en su versión bilingüe por Visor Libros, son Libro de la Egoísta (2006), Profundidad de Campo (2009) que fue escogido por el suplemento “El Cultural” como uno de los 5 mejores poemarios publicados ese año en España y La segunda lengua (2014), que se quedó a las puertas del Nacional de Poesía. Activa dinamizadora cultural, desde 2009 dirige varios proyectos estables, siempre con poetas gallegos e internacionales: un taller anual de traducción poética, un festival internacional de poesía y un ciclo mensual de recitales (Premio de la Crítica Galicia mejor Iniciativa Cultural 2014).

Ha sido distinguida con becas internacionales de creación en residencia en Rodas (Grecia),

 

 

LISETTE MA NEZA (NL)

Lisette Ma Neza omschrijft zichzelf als een kwetsbaar meisje, maar toch een sterke vrouw. Met poëzie zoekt ze naar haar eigen identiteit, vindt ze verhalen van anderen, verliest ze zichzelf in het publiek en vormt ze haar eigen waarheid. Haar performances balanceren tussen pijnlijk direct en verliefde naïviteit en grijpen het publiek dikwijls bij de keel.
