The work of the poet Indrek Mesikepp, who has the  shortest writer’s name in Estonia - fs - draws together the contemporary lines of power in Estonian poetry, while at the same time staying clearly distinct, standing out. He is a poet sensitive to the times. 

Indrek Mesikepp graduated from Tartu University in 1999 as an art historian. He has been working at the literary monthly Looming since 2000, is a literary critic and has also written short prose. His pseudonym already has a history: it was first the glamorous François Snakesnake, inspired by the films of Pierre Richard, then first simplified to François Serpent, and finally the very short form of it. By now he is the author of five poetry collections. In 2004 Indrek Mesikepp won the Estonian Cultural Endowment's Award for Poetry: the epigraph of the book 2004 was chosen from George Orwell’s novel 1984. This collection has also appeared in the Swedish, Russian, and Bulgarian languages.
