Born in Valencia (Spain) in 1983, I am a bilingual writer with a BA in Journalism (UCH-CEU, Spain), an M.Sc. in Comparative literature (Edinburgh University, Scotland) and a PhD ABD of Spanish Literature with a minor in Creative Writing (University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA).
I’ve earned my bread as a copywriter and tech writer in the past, but I am currently pursuing an academic career in the USA.
I’m the recipient of a Fulbright grant and a Kohler Fellowship at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, among other distinctions.
My academic interests lie in a garden of forking paths: Latin American contemporary culture (with an emphasis in the Southern Cone), comparative literature, translation studies, creative writing, poetry, short story theory and theatre studies.
My vital interests are all over the place.
Under the pen-name Marcos Neroy, I usually write poetry, theatre, short stories and dabble in folk music composition. PEN International Magazine, The Poetic Republic, Vulture Magazine and Turia, among others, have been graceful hosts to my poems.
