About Me


Sébastien Bernard is a poet and fiction writer from—and based in—Istanbul, Turkey. His works have appeared in over a dozen literary journals and magazines, including the Michigan Quarterly Review, Salamander, Prelude, Black Warrior Review, DIAGRAM, and Evergreen Review. His audiovisual poem—with footage edited by Sarah Huneidi—was featured in BARAKUNAN's Electronic Literature Day, and is available here.

His poetry MS, "GENTLE!", was a finalist for 3 awards. His translation of Noam Chomsky's conversations with Michael Albert has been published by Scala Press in Istanbul. He currently translates literary and sociological texts through KALEM Agency.

Sébastien also practices astrology. His reading method for birth charts synthesizes some of the oldest traditions of western astrology with modern phenomenology and dialectics. His approach is creative and cognitive, but most importantly, it's geared towards you and your needs.
