Academic scholarship, creative literature & magical lyricism.


Irene Marques is a writer, poet, scholar and educator; she wants to have wings, to be a being of the world, of the universe. Moving from Portugal to Canada at the age of twenty, Irene was inspired to work bilingually and cross-culturally because reality is complex and constantly asks to be deciphered.
