My name is Chiara Tomasella and I’m a 23-years-old student currently living in Verona (North-East Italy for those who don’t know where this beautiful city’s located, even if Shakespeare made it famous with his Romeo and Juliet masterpiece). I’m attending university, master degree: I love reading and writing, the main reason why I chose to specialise in literature and journalism. I wrote my first entries online at EFP website > https://efpfanfic.net/viewuser.php?uid=835506 (here’s the link), where users post mainly fanfiction; then I switched on Wattpad, where I put more original contents (https://www.wattpad.com/user/La_Cantastorie). More recently, I collaborate with a blog called “Cogito et Volo”, a project I follow managing other people stories and poetic writings (http://www.cogitoetvolo.it/author/chiara/)
I published a few other articles on two paper-magazines (Il Pais > http://www.ilpais.it/2018/09/12/intervista-a-simone-mestroni-come-conquistare-una-citta-con-la-cultura/ and Universus Magazine), based respectively in Udine (Friuli Venezia Giulia) and Verona (Veneto region); I wrote an entry for ArtSpecialDay (http://www.artspecialday.com/9art/2018/09/11/karen-darboe-quando-il-fumetto-e-arte/), won a poetry contest (3rd place), translated a Greek text for a competition organised by a high school in Vittorio Veneto, tried to take every chance to follow my dreams and managed to do … a nice job, or at least my best
I wrote the preface of a book by Gianna Venier and I’m now editing a novel by Dan Ruben; step by step I’m getting nearer my goal of earning a living doing what I love. Maybe this place/website will help me doing it better, sometimes
Thanks for reading this self-presentation!
Have a good time
