Andrej Hočevar

1980, Slovenia

A member of the editorial board at LUD Literatura, Andrej Hočevar (1980) is the main editor of the literary series Prišleki. After having been the review editor at the magazine Literatura, he became the editor in chief of the online magazine www.ludliteratura.si. He is also the author of five poetry collections. The first, Vračanja (2002) was nominated as the best newcomer. It was followed by Ribe in obzornice (2005), Pesmi o koscih in podobnostih (2007) and Privajanje na svetlobo (2009). His most recent book was published in 2011 and is titled Leto brez idej. His works, translated into different languages, have appeared in various magazines and anthologies and Hočevar was a guest at many literary festivals across Europe. Besides poetry, Hočevar also writes reviews and essays (mostly about poetry). Recently, he has also been reviewing music, mostly jazz. Here and then he might translate something (mostly poetry from English) and write introductions. He quit playing in a rock band some time ago, though he sometimes combines poetry with music, mostly of an improvised nature. Even though those performances are of a somewhat ephemeral nature, one recording, with Andraž Jež, is available on the CD Pri besedi z glasom in zvokom.
