Desde el Exilio

...A collection of poems from the exile

From the Exile is a dystopic bilingual collection of poems of a young girl who journeys through the nightmares and hopes during the Venezuelan dictatorship. Concealing her identity, she recounts the most disturbing events of the darkest period of her country’s history and her own personal transformation from the exile.

About me who is Arcaniam

Arcaniam is the alter ego of the Venezuelan writer, translator, interpreter, and localizer, Marianna G.F.
 Although she is originally from Venezuela, she had the opportunity to travel around the world at 10 years old due to her parents needing to finish their PhDs in Europe. This period of abrupt changes in her life began to shape her identity and define her personality’s pillars via her unconditional love for discovering new languages, works of literature, and history.
