Giuseppe Bartoli is a Peruvian-Italian-American poet, novelist, and writer currently residing between London and the Americas. Although he has been writing from an early age, it was not until 2003, while reading International Communications and History at AUP [the American University of Paris] that his first book Excerpts of Life [a collection of both prose and verse juvenilia] was published in the US.
The following year, Giuseppe transferred to the University of St Andrews where inspired by both the advice and tutelage of Douglas Dunn, he dabbled with endless poetic forms until finding a voice that suited his personas both in English and Spanish. The result was his first full collection of poems Las Veinticinco (Horas), which was written in Spanish.
After a brief stint studying a triple masters in managements in Lyon, Giuseppe returned to the UK and completed an MA in Creative Writing at Kingston University where he is now reading a Creative Writing Ph.D. on the Uruguayan poet Delmira Agustini. Some of his most recent poems have appeared in issues of Poetry Scotland, Poetry Quarterly, Your One Phone Call, and Oxfam’s poetic anthology Lung Jazz.
Following five years of not publishing a book, 2016 will see Giuseppe launch three projects, in three countries, in two languages: The Fifth Most Wanted Man with Marick Press in the US, Ayacucho: Death’s Corner [his first novel] with Eyewear Publishing in the UK, and Los Usos Indebidos del Amor with Editorial Apogeo in Lima, Peru.
Giuseppe is currently editing his second novel while designing his first children's book [written both in English and Spanish].
