Moj otac je bio novinar. Uhapšen je nakon što je pisao o trovanju na Kosovu i u Makedoniji. Nakon što je uhapšen, počela sam da se interesujem za snagu reči. Zašto jedan tekst može da bude zabranjen? Počela sam da shvatam sebe kroz poeziju i kroz književnost.
Ervina Halili was born in Prishtina in 1986, but much of her first decade of life was spent on the move, a result of regional turmoil and was in the Balkans. Raised in a family of writers, Halili’s interest in storytelling was sparked early-on, as she began to understand herself and society through poetry and literature. She is a published author of numerous works, including her first poem titled, ‘Crowd 97’ which was inspired by observations of a protest in Prishtina that she attended when she was just 11-years-old.
