Karl Martin Sinijärv (born June 4, 1971 in Tallinn) is an Estonian journalist and a poet.[1]

By 2011, Sinijärv had published 8 poetry books and a cookbook. His poetry has been characterized as etnofuturist, bringing estrangement of language to the brink of self-parody. Sinijärv's first book of poems was published in 1989 in a collection with three other poetry books by Tõnu Trubetsky, Ringo Ringvee and Märt Väljataga.

Sinijärv has written numerous articles in media. He has also been the anchor of culture shows "OP!" and "Jüri Üdi klubi" in Estonian public television channel Eesti Televisioon for more than 10 years.[2]

Since April 2007, Sinijärv is the chairman of Estonian Writers' Union.[3]

Karl Martin Sinijärv is the son of politician and diplomat Riivo Sinijärv. His grandfather was futurist and socialist poet Erni Hiir.
