Adrian Grima (*1968, Malta) teaches Maltese literature at the University of Malta.

His poems are sometimes very personal commentaries and intellectual analyses of current political events. Some of the poems in his collection “Rakkmu” (2006), for example, dealt with the fate of immigrants in the Mediterranean and Palestinians. In 2008, he published a volume of poetry and essays on climate change in partnership with Immanuel Mifsud which won the Special Prize for Creativity in the National Book Awards (2009).

A book of poetry (Maltese, with English translations) with a music CD by Rory McCarron will be published shortly in Northern Ireland. Grima has given lectures worldwide on literature, culture and the Mediterranean region and published articles and anthologies of contemporary Maltese literature.

Grima co-ordinates the Mediterranean cultural organisation Inizjamed, which he co-founded in 1998, and in 2004 he organised the Klandestini – Emerging Mediterranean Writers festival. Adrian Grima has been the director of the Malta Mediterranean Literature Festival since 2007.
