Sissal Kampmann

Sissal Kampmann (1974) was born in the small town of Vestmanna in the Faroe Islands. She earned her MA in Nordic Literature and Cultural Communication from the University of Copenhagen. Her debut poetry collection, Ravnar á ljóðleysum flogi–Yrkingar úr uppgongdini (The Silent Flight of Ravens–Poems from the Stairway), established her reputation as a prominent figure in Faroese literature. In 2012, Kampmann became the first Faroese poet to win the Danish Literary Academy's prestigious Klaus Rifbjerg Prize. Endurtøkur (Repetitions) is Sissal Kampmann’s latest trailblazing collection of poetry.
