Glen Calleja is a poet, storyteller and theatre performer from Malta. Calleja writes mainly in Maltese, his mother tongue, but has also published poetry, essays and short stories in English, Malta’s official language.

Calleja’s writing often explores issues relating to the passage from boyhood to manhood and the politics and perceptions of masculinity. In his poetry, he regularly recycles from his earlier writings re-proposing them in new forms.

He is also co-founder of Fondazzjoni AWL, an independent group working on poetry with an interdisciplinary approach and has led theatre formation workshops in Malta, Greece and Italy. Calleja also led the international interdisciplinary project TKEĊNIR: kitchen work (2010-2011) and the storytelling and book art project The Depot of Living Things (2009).

Calleja’s interests include running, traditional and digital storytelling and Aikido. Read Less
