Born in 1986, Dmitriy Belyanin is a poet, poetry translator and author of amateur videos, compiled from photos, from Almaty, Kazakhstan. He has been writing poems in English and Russian since high school, but until the mid-2010s, writing was only a personal hobby. Starting 2014-15, Dmitriy Belyanin began to share his poems and translations of classical Russian poetry online on several websites, such as All Poetry. His translations have been published on the website RuVerses (Russian Poems in Translations) and on the website devoted to the works of the Russian poet Nikolai Gumilev. Dmitriy also runs the YouTube channel Dmitriy BM. This channel includes, among other content, videos of poetry recitations. He is determined to continue pursuing his creative activities.
