Author Lupe Gómez
Poet and journalist Lupe Gómez was born in Fisteus, Galicia in 1972 and lives currently in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia. Camouflage (Chan da Pólvora, 2017), her eleventh book, is already in its third printing in Galicia. It was awarded the prestigious Spanish Critics’ Prize for 2018 for poetry in Galician and the 2018 Gala do Libro Galego Prize for poetry. Her book of poems Pornography was translated into English by Rebeca Lema and Erín Moure and published in Germany in 2013. Gómez is acclaimed for her ability to weave images that startle, for her poetic confrontations with patriarchal thinking, tender and brave, and for the way her works celebrate and honor individual and collective life. Camouflage and Pornography both appeared in Spanish (Castilian) translation in 2018.
