Yannis Kondos (Greek: Γιάννης Κοντός) (b. Aigio 1943) is an award winning Greek poet. He read Economics at the University of Piraeus (then Higher School for Industrial Studies). He founded the bookshop Ηνίοχος in 1971, along with Thanassis Niarchos. Since 1975, he has been working for Kedros publishers. He has also been professor of poetry for Kostas Kazakos' School of Dramatic Art.

He 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.

He was awarded the State Prize for Poetry for his collection, Absurd Athlete in 1998. His work has been translated into English, German and Danish.
