Alexandra Todorka Doza

Alexandra Todorka Doza (34), born and raised in Austria and in Tyrol, Switzerland, has lived in Zürich for almost 10 years and is considering moving to Biel. Die Wörter bei uns Daheim is the author's debut novel. She has also published an essay in an anthology during her studies. She was therefore all the more delighted to once again take part in the Biel Talks in February 2023. The submitted manuscript was revised in 2019/20 as part of a one-year mentorship with Swiss author Dorothee Elmiger. Doza sees writing as one of many ways to process reality. The author describes this reflection as a necessity, if not her duty.
