Denise Pereira started writing poetry when she was ten, having been fascinated by words and their musicality since an early age. In 2011, she began publishing her poems online in a blog called Janela Inquieta. She holds a PhD in History, Philosophy and Heritage of Science and Technology by Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and has been singing in choirs since 2012: Coro da Universidade de Lisboa, Coro Miosótis and Coro do Tejo. She has been participating regularly in Poetry Slam competitions since 2014, and in 2016, created a music-poetic performance called “Marioneta Inquieta” (The restless puppet), which was performed several times in Lisbon and once in Berlin. She moved to Berlin in August 2016 and has since begun developing a musical-poetic project called “rui+Marioneta”. She is currently collaborating as an author in the literary on-line platform “Liberoamérica – Revista Iberoamericana de Literatura, Cultura e Igualdad”, for which she also contributed as an author and editor for an anthology of feminine poetry “Liberoamericanas – 60 poetas contemporâneas”, that will soon be released in Argentina. She was recently invited to be an author for the yet to be released online literary platform “A Bacana” and is currently working on her first poetry book.
