In conversation with Ari Gautier about queer literature, spirituality, sexuality, and more.
Poetry Is Possible: Selected Poems was launched during Oslo Pride 2018 at Melahuset.

The Hindu interview

“At a time when people in the arts often shy away from speaking of their spiritual practice for fear of being perceived as woolly-headed, apolitical or even dogmatic, Vikram Kolmannskog comes as a breath of fresh air. This poet and Gestalt therapist from Oslo, who recently toured India with his new book Taste and See: A Queer Prayer wears his heart on his sleeve more fiercely than you can imagine.”

Interviewed in The Hindu about my latest book

A spiritual and sensual prayer

“To avoid pain some resort to drinking or drugs, others to social media or sex. With silence, slowing down, awareness and compassion something else might happen. And this is what the narrator in the story eventually does. After fleeting chats and hookups, overconsumption of chocolate and Netflix, he goes to a silent retreat.”

I was recently interviewed in the Bangalore Mirror about my latest book
Taste and See. A Queer Prayer.

Together with my friend and fellow writer, Stefan Storm, I have established an Oslo-based, queer-owned publisher, Mohini Books

We are proud to present this first publication.
Taste and see is a story in the form of a poem about a gay man’s quest for love in the world of dating apps and random sex. He explores a relationship that is both spiritual and sensual. But what are we willing to do for love? What are we willing to give up?
