Paula Cortes is a poet with a degree in Clinical Psychology (ISPA) and a Trainee existential psychotherapist (Portuguese Society of Existential Psychology).
She has been organizing and participating in several literary initiatives, and giving voice to poems in events for which she has been invited. Paula is the female voice of the Lisbon Poetry Orchestra, a multidisciplinary collective formed by a group of musicians who invite other artists to celebrate and interpret poetry in a truly unique journey to the discovery and reinvention of the spoken word. This year, on Poetry Day, the group released an illustrated book/album entitled “Poetas Portugueseses de Agora”.
Photography and painting are spaces of freedom. And writing precedes everything. Paula has a blog where she writes about poetry and psychology.
