Blurb for LOVE & METAXA


Marc Antony Owen and I follow each other on Twitter. He won my last poetry book, Love & Vodka in a giveaway. He asked me to be featured on his innovative creative collaborative poetry site in November 2020. If you want to know more about his site please visit and read and listen to all the talented poets: https://www.iambapoet.com/about-iamb where he features many voices of poetry, published and unpublished, famous and not so famous. What is unique about iamb is that alongside your poems are your readings of the poems which he publishes on SoundCloud. He featured three of my poems to listen to and read. Here is the link: https://www.iambapoet.com/christina-strigas

“Measured Teaspoons” is from my upcoming collection, Love & Metaxa.

Mark Antony Owen gives so much of his time and energy to the poetry community. I am so grateful to have been a part of one his “waves.”

Syllabic poet Mark Antony Owen writes exclusively in nine original forms – sometimes, with variations. His work centres on that world where the rural bleeds into the suburban: a world he calls ‘subrural’. Mark is the author of digital-only poetry project Subruria, as well as the founder, editor, designer, sound engineer and publisher of iamb.

This is the wonderful blurb he wrote for Love & Metaxa:

“The only words that should be used to describe Christina Strigas’s poetry – in this volume or any of her others – are Christina’s words themselves. Some readers will find the emotional (and sexual) honesty in Love & Metaxa simply too overwhelming, too raw. But surely, even they will recognise and respect the palpable longing, tender confession and unflinching confrontation of truths exposed by these poems. You want poetry to soothe and comfort? Read another poet.”

—Mark Antony Owen, author of Subruria
