Thanks for dropping by!
My name is Adolfo Aranjuez, and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I’m probably best known as the editor of Metro, Australia’s oldest film and media periodical, and, previously, as the editor of annual fiction/poetry anthology Award Winning Australian Writing and the deputy editor of literary magazine Voiceworks.
In addition to my editing day job, I write nonfiction and poetry, and appear at festivals and arts events to speak about race, queer and mental-health issues, the publishing industry, and various other topics. I’m also an emerging dancer—my genres are hip-hop/urban and commercial, with flavours of lyrical.
I am one of twelve participants for the inaugural Midsumma Futures, a nine-month mentorship and development program for queer artists/performers.
In 2015, the Melbourne Writers Festival named me one of the city’s 30 Under 30.
