Gustavo Araujo


GUSTAVO ARAUJO was born in Curitiba, State of Paraná, in 1973. In 1996, he created a blog to talk about his travel experiences, and that was when he fell in love with writing. 

When social networking websites became popular around 2005, he started to experiment with short stories. In 2009, he published his first novel, O artilheiro ["The Goal Scorer"], which was shortlisted for the National Contest promoted by SESC (Social Service of Commerce). 

His work has the YA universe as a backdrop, exploring the difficult transition from innocence to the real world, platonic love, conflicts with parents, and how loyalty among friends is put to the test.

He currently coordinates a literary challenge called Entre Contos [Between Short Stories], which is one of cultural sponsors to CBSS.
