We are Miru, Kamiel and Yeon Choi, a family of writers.
Yeon is a theatre designer, graphic artist and published author. Kamiel is a philosopher and a poet. Miru is their daughter.
Miru and Kamiel form the duo ‘Struikeltje’ (Stumbleine) which performs and publishes poetry for adults and children. They are currently working on our third collaborative book, The fly at the tip of your tongue filled with funny, serious, hilarious, sensitive, conceptual and silly poems and spectacular illustrations.
The name Struikeltje goes back to the 2021 Dutch collection of 50 poems for all ages, illustrated by Miru. There is also an English version available (let us know what you think!). In 2020 they published In onze rivier (in our river), also a collection of 50 funny poems and songs.
For adults, Kamiel published the poetry collection ‘Tiktaalik‘ and is preparing his second volume, ‘Klein verzet’ (low gear rebel).
Kamiel also wrote the novel ‘Kalim I’ and is working on the next one, ‘2030’, as well as some short stories about truth and justice in our increasingly digitized society.
Kamiel also writes Dutch poetry reviews for Meander magazine.
Yeon published several travel books in Korean. She is currently working on a collection of essays.
