Maria Laina (Greek: Μαρία Λαϊνά) (b. Patras 1947) is an award winning Greek poet. She read Law at the University of Athens, but she did not practice it, and has worked instead as a translator, critic, screenwriter, copy editor, professor of Greek and radio producer.

She belongs to the so-called Genia tou 70, which is a literary term referring to Greek authors who began publishing their work during the 1970s, especially towards the end of the Greek military junta of 1967-1974 and at the first years of the Metapolitefsi.

She was awarded the State Prize for Poetry for her collection, Ρόδινος φόβος in 1993 and the Cavafy, together with Giorgos Markopoulos in 1996. Her poetry has been translated into English, French and Spanish.
