August 14, 2019– Our guest blogger today is Giuliano Enciso, author of On Blank Pages. I had the pleasure of being introduced to him a few months ago and I’m captivated by his poetry and truth. I know that when you read his work that you’ll feel the same way.
My name is Giuliano Blaquera but I publish under the name Giuliano Enciso, I am a poet and author. My mother passed away from cancer and I publish under her maiden name. She was always a huge supporter of everything artistic, and everything I did, and only wish she could read and hear my words today. Every time my words touch paper or a microphone, they will always be dedicated to her.
The first part of my book, On Blank Pages, is an entire chapter of pieces inspired by my mother. It’s a short chapter but the pieces speak the loudest in my opinion. The rest of the book follows love and heartache, self-discovery and personal growth because as writers, one of our aims is to always learn and grow in our craft. I have a second project in the works, that looks at growth both in the individual pieces and the growth of my words as an artist.
As a child, I’ve gone through plenty of change and as a teenager, it’s hard to find an outlet or even the right ways of expression. Moving countries, changing friends, relearning how to start over, all things that went into creating who I am. I went to school for psychology and always enjoyed trying to understand how different people interact with one another and have always been intrigued by the relationships we have. I started writing while in school, and found myself gravitating towards poetry.
The hope is that anyone who reads my book, can find something that speaks to them, something they can relate to, and something that let’s them know, whatever it is that’s going on in their lives, they’re not alone.
