In her work, Ewa explores themes such as eco-poetics, exile, and migration. She expanded on those themes as a guest on New Hampshire Public Radio’s The Bookshelf In February and October 2017. Chrusciel was invited to develop one of her poems into a Stories from the Stage storytelling presentation (starting at 19:45) that was broadcast in 2018 by World Channel in collaboration with Boston’s GBH and in partnership with Mass Mouth. She was featured along with Cleopatra Mathis at a 2021 reading presented by Bookstock and the Norman Williams Public Library in honor of National Poetry Month.

She also translated various authors into Polish, including books by Jack London, Joseph Conrad, and I.B. Singer, as well as a book of selected poems by Jorie Graham, and selected poems of Kazim Ali, Lyn Hejinian, Cole Swensen and other American poets.

Her poems have been included in curricula at institutions such as Harvard University, University of Wisconsin, and Salem State University. She is a Professor of Creative and Professional Writing at Colby-Sawyer College.
