Greta Bellamacina is an poet, actress and filmmaker. She was short-listed as the Young Poet Laureate of London in 2014 and since then her poetry has gone on to be acclaimed internationally. Her most recent book Selected Poems 2015-2017 published by New River Press in the UK has been translated into a Spanish to be published by Valparaíso Editions this March—

"This new selected poems confirms Bellamacina as one of the most significant female voices under 30 in British poetry. It brings together her sold-out 2016 collection Perishing Tame - “a dazzling meditation on motherhood, female identity, ennui, and love” - with 14 new poems from 2017 including the anthemic Tomorrow’s Women, which has been turned into a film for British Vogue. Bellamacina writes with a liquid musicality and existential complexity, influenced by the French Surrealists, Slyvia Plath, and Anne Sexton."

Andy Warhol's interview magazine says, “Bellamacina is garnering critical acclaim for her way with words and her ability to translate the classic poetic form into the contemporary landscape”.

She was born in London and made her acting debut in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at the age of thirteen. She trained at RADA where she performed a variety of lead stage roles, before going on to do a B.A. in English at King’s College London.

Greta's first feature film as writer and director 'Hurt by Paradise' is currently in post-production and is set to premier at film-festivals this summer.
