Emma Puikkonen

Emma Puikkonen has written five novels, two children’s books together with Arja Puikkonen and a guide to literary art for children and youth. She has graduated as a Master of Arts (University of Helsinki 2015) and a drama instructor (Turku UAS 2000). Puikkonen works on contemporary theatre with the working group “Rakkaudesta” and teached writing and literary art.

“I write about things I don’t understand but I want to perceive. The relationship between the changing society and a human being is one constantly interesting theme. I think artistic work is a process of examination and learning; sometimes it goes wrong but the work develops. I admire bright structures, when the texts become visible as three-dimensional spaces.”
