Amaranta Osorio


Since I learned to write, I have written diaries. Writing saves me from madness. I need to write to understand myself, to understand others and to enjoy life. I think I write from my body, from the emotions, perhaps that is why my writing is full of sensations, images and questions.

I think I write in order to shake off the feeling of impotence that I have when I see what is happening in the world. Writing is my act of resistance. I would like my writing to bring at least an instant of beauty, to put some light into this darkness, a beautiful light like the one of fireflies.
