Writer Profile

Zoria Petkoska

Tokyo Weekender commissioning editor and head of TW events. A polyglot, polymath, published poet. Or simply, a curious cat. Can be overly opinionated about coffee. Zoria is a neo-Tokyoite telling stories about the city in many forms. She loves all the things you would expect – travel, coffee, cyberpunk, concrete walls, power lines. The rattle of trains in the distance.
