Charlotte Van den Broeck
Charlotte Van den Broeck (b. 1991) is a Belgian novelist and poet. Van den Broeck was acclaimed as one of Europe's most innovative and original new voices in poetry. Her debut volume Chameleon was published in 2015, with its sequel Nachtroer two years later. These two volumes are combined in Chameleon | Nachtroer, translated from the Dutch by David Colmer (Bloodaxe Books, 2020). The book is named after a night shop in Antwerpen that forms the departure point for the poems that are connected as part of a journey detailing love, loss and estrangement.
In 2019 Van den Broeck's debut novel Waagstukken was published. In 2020 she will launch her new poetry collection Chameleon | Nachtroer with a series of readings in the United Kingdom.
