Literary activities

Moreover the Argentinian publisher house Prosa Amerian  published a book by her entitled El espíritu de la palabra (PROSA, 2010) a poetry investigation essay based on the experience of a group of poets called “La Santa Hermandad de la Orquidea” (1938-1941) and in the architectural and poetic experience carried out in the well renowned Ciudad abierta, located in Ritoque, Chile. This work was the result of research and interviews with Alberto Cruz, one of the ideologues and creators.

For two years, with a friend, she was the organizer and responsible for the annual poetry event Arte Poética e Integración held in Santa Cruz, which had the participation of poets from different South American countries. Since then, she organizes one youth poetry contest every year, whose goal is to encourage the poetic and pictorial development of young people. She also writes for the Argentinian cultural magazine PROA en las Letras y en las Artes, the oldest and most read cultural publication in Spanish all over South America, recently renamed PROSA. This magazine has recently declared Gigia as Embassador of South American Poetry.

In 2008 she published her first novel La sonrisa cortada (Argentina and Bolivia), currently in its third edition. She is currently working on a novel about a poetic journey through the Amazon in the 1940s and the influences of this constructivist experience in the current South American poetry. In addition, she is working on a new poetry book. In May 2016, she will present her new book   “The mysterious land of waters”.
