Juan Garrido-Salgado

Juan Garrido Salgado migrated to Australia from Chile in 1990, fleeing the regime that burned his poetry and imprisoned and tortured him for political activism. He has published eight poetry books, and his work has been widely translated. He has also translated into Spanish works by a number of leading Australian and five Aboriginal poets for the anthology Espejo de Tierra/ Earth Mirror (2008). With Steve Brock and Sergio Holas, Juan translated the Trilingual Mapuche Poetry Anthology –Poetry of the Earth into English. In 2019, Juan read poems from his book: When I was Clandestine (Rochford Press, 2019), as part of a poetical tour at the Granada International Poetry Festival in Nicaragua, and at a series of literary events in Mexico and Cuba. “Hope Blossoming in their Ink” (Puncher & Wattmann 2020). “The Dilemma of Writing a Poem”. (Puncher & Wattmann 2023).
