Daniela Elza’s work has appeared nationally and internationally in over 80 publications. Her poetry books are the book of It (Ebook, and Print, 2011), the weight of dew (Mother Tongue Publishing, 2012) and milk tooth bane bone (Leaf Press, 2013). Daniela lives and writes in Vancouver.
Daniela Elza's milk tooth bane bone is a book that sweeps across the reader's consciousness like a bird's wing. The poems do something rather miraculous: fragmentary yet narrative, grounded yet mythic, they deconstruct and build simultaneously, forge and empty out meanings and images.
