Cuban-American in unequal parts, Edward Gonzalez studied excercise physiology and linguistics, also in unequal parts. He is bilingual in Spanish and English and, in a way, in the languages of the physical and the verbal. When he's not teaching English or playing with his two daughters, he writes, mostly on his cell phone. He promotes the idea of "doing poetry," or writing as a form of creative excercise (aluding to the Greek idea of the poet as a do-er), and that "doing poetry" is within reach of anyone who wants to create. For him, "doing poetry" is exploring the connections between the individual, their language, their surroundings, and all the interactions that arise as a consequence of these things. His verse collection Sin Zapatos / Shoes Off (Mago Editores, 2018) "does poetry" in both his languages, written partly in English and partly in Spanish. He teaches at the in the Department of Letters of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
