Irina Moga is a Canadian writer who writes in English and French and the author of several poetry collections. Her work was featured in literary magazines, books and anthologies in Canada, USA, France, UK, Germany and Romania.
Irina Moga's poetry is steeped in lyricism;
yet the auctorial voice in her poems is that of a restrained confession, within a shifting landscape. The sotto voce of consonants and vowels blends in with imagery in a vortex of catharsis and illusion.
