Dimitra Kotoula [Δήμητρα Κωτούλα ] (b. 1974 in Komotini, Greece) lives in Athens, where she works as a research assistant at the Byzantine Museum. She studied archaeology and art history at the University of Ioannina and the Courtald Institute of Art in London. In 2006 she gained her doctorate with a thesis on Byzantine funeral chapel architecture.

Her first book of poetry, “Treis notes gia mia mousiki” (“Three Notes for a Melody”), appeared in 2004. Her lyrical voice is free of any sentimentality or aestheticism, and yet does not lack warmth and beauty. Her poems have been translated into English and French. She has translated from the English, among others, Louise Glück, Jorie Graham and Sharon Olds.
