“Franziska Ruprecht developed as a performance poet in Detroit, where she won several poetry slams while studying at Wayne State University. She’s also been a frequent performer at the Munich Poetry Slam.
She says that she’s influenced by “the play between languages (German and English, sometimes French, too); the experimental approach of the Language School poets, especially Carla Harryman; sophisticated hip-hop music; everything that’s pop; the emotional mission of poetry; and the wonders of life.””
