Paula Puolakka

Paula Puolakka (1982) is a Beat poet, writer, and MA (History of Science and Ideas) who has won poetry and short story contests held in the USA and Israel. She has also been given credit from the essay contests held in Finland, for example, by The Finnish Reserve Officers' Federation. In fall and early winter 2019, Puolakka's work has been displayed through Jerry Jazz Musician, The Reader/Author Connection, Thimble Literary Magazine, Former People etc. Her interview that was published through South Florida Poetry Journal in October and included, for example, her views over the thoughts of Mr. Ludwig Wittgenstein, Mr. Theodore Kaczynski, and over the different forms of violence in society, had to be, unfortunately, withdrawn since the editors went and censored the interview after the publication without her permission. Puolakka's uncensored interview can still be found through Re:fiction. Between April and late November 2019, Puolakka was 17 x the winner of the daily poetry challenge held by Poetry Potion.
