Maria Eliades is a Greek-American writer who lives in the New York metro area and blogs for Ploughshares. She’s also written fiction and non-fiction on everything from Turkish literature in translation, Greek/Turkish culture, and Turkish politics. Maria lived in Istanbul, Turkey for six years and is currently working on a novel.
