I am MARI PEEGEL.


I am an Estonian journalist. I have graduated from the University of Tartu with an MA in Semiotics and Culturology in 2002. My articles are regularly published by the cultural publications Looming and Sirp and lifestyle magazine EMA. I also worked as a journalist for the Estonian daily newspaper, Eesti Päevaleht. Besides my hometown Tallinn, I have resided in Berlin and worked as a guest journalist for Berliner Zeitung and Deutschlandfunk Kultur. In 2016, I was awarded the Critics' Award by Looming magazine. In 2017, I took part in the Goethe-Institut's journalism programme, Nahaufname. I am also a member of the Board at the Estonian PEN Centre and local correspondent at Reporters Without Borders in Estonia.
