Samantha Cosentino

Originally from Buenos Aires, Samantha Cosentino has recently returned to the San Francisco Bay Area after years living on an island, in the desert, and all over Germany. Home still eludes her—she suspects she writes in search of it. Samantha holds an MA in Creative Writing and works to translate the poetry of life onto the page and stage. She was the 2020 Browning Society Gita Specker Monologue Contest award winner and has written and choreographed local cirque nouveau productions. Samantha translates from Spanish and German and is currently working on a hybrid collection that explores the immigrant experience, language acquisition, and translation—what is lost, what is gained—inspired by an old collection of 50 poetry books in Spanish brought over and the selective mutism she suffered after the move.
