Basil Rouskas has been writing poetry for over 30 years. His first poetry lines in the Greek language were protests against the military Junta who took over Greece and ruled it until the mid 70’s. He translated literature and theatre during his first years in the US and gradually his poetry became bilingual. He currently writes mainly in English. His first chapbook, Redrawing Borders, was published in 2010 by Finishing Line Press and drew favorable reviews in the Journal of Hellenic Diaspora in 2012. Basil’s poetry has been featured in many poetry venues, including the New York Times, Princeton Public Library Podcast, Helix Magazine, Shot Glass Journal, and TIFERET, A Journal of Spiritual Literature. http://www.nov-aspire.com
