Minerva Pietilä is a poet, who turned to writing after she discovered her hands were too small and her self-discipline too weak to continue her career as a classical pianist. Her main area of interest in text is exploring normalcy, which inevitably turns into an absurd and often devastating universe on the page.

Minerva is based in Copenhagen, and works in Denmark, Finland and Iceland as a writer and creative writing teacher. She has worked in collaboration with Spindrift creating the dramatization for Them.
