Juha Kulmala

Juha Kulmala is a poet from Turku, whose sixth poetry collection RESET (Poesia) was published in January 2022. Even though RESET sees the planet and human’s present state in its hopelessness, under absurd humour and visions in the poems there are also sparks of the possibility of a different way of thought.

Kulmala’s earlier collections have been awarded with Jarkko Laine prize, YLE’s Tanssiva Karhu prize, and nominated with Runeberg and Einari Vuorela prizes, among others. Kulmala has worked long as producer of poetry events, and already nearly 25 years as a performing poet.
