On the third turbulent day of May 1968 in the The Hague quarter of Mariahoeve Erik Lindner was born to the world. When he turned fourteen he left secondary school and worked, amongst others, as a tutor of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy for The Arts. From 1998 till 2003 he was attached to the Institut Néerlandais in Paris as a freelance programmer.

He made his debut in 1996 in Perdu publishers' Kleurenreeks (Colour series) and then moved to De Bezige Bij. He has read his work to audiences since 1984 and was a guest at various international festivals. On the site of Poetry International Rotterdam there is an article by Janita Monna about Lindner's poetry. This essay is also available in English.
