Francine Clavien

Studied in Geneva and Lausanne where she currently lives. In 2001, her first volume of poetry Terre arraisonnée was published. In the second volume, Eté visionnaire (2002), she raises the issue of conscience, while in the third one – C’est bien ici que je vis (2004) – in an attempt to describe the condition of an artist, she evokes images of home and metaphorical places where dreams merge with elements of everyday life. She also publishes in various literary journals, such as Archipel, Revue des Belles Lettres and Florilège.
