Raquel Garzón

Raquel Garzón (Córdoba, Argentina, 1970) is a poet and journalist. Thanks to five books, Crucigramas (1987), Cataclismos (1989), Poemas Grises (1991), Riesgos de la noche (2001) and Monstruos privados (2006), she is considered one of the most original voices of her generation. In them, she subtly and sometimes ironically explores "intimacy as territory" and demonstrates a striking concern with language. From 2001 to 2003 she was the editor of BULEVAR, the poetry section of the Culture and Nation Supplement of Clarín newspaper in Buenos Aires. For more than a decade her work has been focused on cultural issues and she is currently one of the editors of Clarín's cultural magazine. She is also a contributor to the Madrid newspaper EL PAÍS. In 2003 she was one of the founding professors of the Centro de Estudios Avanzados en Periodismo Narrativo (CEAPN). Since March of 2007 she has been the vice-director of De las Palabras (, a space for training and debate that promotes research in journalism, creative writing and the humanities through online and face-to-face courses given by recognized journalists and writers.
