Eva Salzman

Contributors

Eva Salzman was born in 1960 in New York City, and grew up in Brooklyn where – from the age of 10 until 22 – she was a dancer and later a choreographer. She was educated at Bennington College and Columbia University, moving to Britain in 1985. She now lives in London. Her eclectic background has led to work in cross-arts projects with artists, dancers and singers. Her teaching work – for children, teenagers and adults – has included projects in London’s East End and a residency at Springhill Prison as well as continuing work for the Poetry Society’s Poet in the City and Poetryclass projects and co-devising a Start Writing Poetry course for the Open University. Double Crossing is her most recent publication.
