Adriana Oniță / Romanian Women Voices in North America II

Updated: Feb 9



We’re thrilled to resume our breakthrough literary series dedicated to women writers from the Romanian-American diaspora with another inspiring and diverse line-up of authors, including Raluca Albu, Adina Dabija, Felicia Mihali, Adriana Oniță, Doris Plantus, Anca Roncea, Elena Secotă, and Saviana Stănescu.


The first episode of the series features Romanian-Canadian poet and academic Adriana Oniță.


Women’s voices dominate the literature written by Romanians in North America. Our literary series, turning the spotlight on this phenomenal wave of creativity, organized in partnership with Denver-based Bucharest Inside the Beltway, continues to bring together the largest group of Romanian-American and Romanian-Canadian women writers we have ever assembled in cyberspace. The program, co-curated with author and academic Cristina A. Bejan, offers a series of readings full of passion, truth and skill to match a time of tumult and reinvention.


Adriana Oniță is a multilingual poet, artist, educator, and researcher coming from Jilava, Romania. She writes în limba română, español, English, français, and italiano. Her chapbook, Conjugated Light (Glass Buffalo, 2019), and her most recent publication in the Globe and Mail feature poems about winter in amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton), Canada. She is the founding editor of The Polyglot, a magazine that has published 148 poets and artists in 43 languages. Adriana is currently completing her PhD in the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta, where she teaches and researches Heritage Language maintenance through the arts.






The program is organized by the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York and Bucharest Inside the Beltway with the support of NARPA - North American Romanian Press Association.
