My name is Iurgi (although, it can also be written as Jurgi). This is my main blog where I publish scribbles, rambles and photos. My life revolves around writing, reading, music, movies…

My background is in media studies and education. I made some short films and occasionally collaborated with news outlets as a freelancer. Then, I worked as a teacher for a few years - which was exhausting but unbelievably rewarding.

Now, I count myself very lucky to be surrounded by books, movies, music, culture, history, art… and working for the community at the library. It took me nearly four decades to figure it out but I love my job.

My favourite writers are:

Prose: Ursula K. Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe, Franz Kafka, George Orwell, Jorge Luis Borges, and Madeline Miller. 

Poetry: Josanton Artze, Bernardo Atxaga, Mario Benedetti, Alfonsina Storni and Blas de Otero.

I tend to favour fantasy and political/history non-fiction books but I read a bit of everything. I’m also an avid comic book reader. Favourite creators: Moebius, Paco Roca.

Writing and story telling have always been central to my life and I always have lots of projects (that I sometimes manage to finish - go figure!).

I have another blog solely for writings in Basque, which you can visit here.

I hate being photographed, but if you want to put a face to my words… 

Although I find this image represents me better...
