Alia Trabucco Zerán is a writer, editor and attorney. She studied Law at the University of Chile, a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing at the New York University and got a PhD in Latin American Literature by the London College University. While she was at University, she became managing director of the Talión magazine, and worked at the Human Rights Center of the Law Faculty at the University of Chile. Besides that, she has participated in several research works about human rights, sexual diversity and feminism; themes which are very present in her writings.



Alia Trabucco is considered a key figure of the so-called “Chilean offspring literature” – novels that  approach the recent national history, full of dictatorships, repressions, disappearances and terror, from the point of view of a child or a teenager. Thanks to one of her novels, she was selected by the El País newspaper among the ten best new names in contemporary literature. She also got the Prize to the Best Literary Works, which is given by the Book Council of Chile. Additionally, she was the first Chilean writer to be nominated to the International Man Booker Prize in the UK, and was recipient of several scholarships, including the Alan Macdonald Endowment grant and the PEN/Heim Translation fund grant.
