Your teacher:

John Gomez is a writer from Bucaramanga, Colombia, with a master’s degree in philosophy from the Industrial University of Santander. He grew up in Bucaramanga, a city in Colombia , where apparently nothing happens, but which inspired him for his contemporary work consisting of multiple poetry publications.

John is also the director of the cultural platform “Alter Vox Media” and “Sátiro Press House” and also the founding partner of the “Cinicoteca Library”.

He obtained Mention of Honour in the International Contest Hacia Itaca 2017 (Mar del Plata, Argentina, 2017), winner of the 9th RCN-MEN National Short Story Contest (Colombia, 2015), finalist of the III La Cueva National Short Story Award (Colombia, 2014) and second place in the National Poetry Contest Café Con-verso Ciudad de Bucaramanga (Colombia, 2012). Now wanting to pass on his knowledge to people overseas, he is ready to teach how to write poems which can be translated in multiple languages and last an eternity.
