The Beginning

Welcome! Bienvenidos! Willkommen! Bem-vidos! Allin hamusqa kapaychik!

My name is Ysmael Campos and today I begin my journey in the pursuit of my dream, to become a writer. I was born in Lima, Peru and I grew up there until I was twelve years old. Then my family immigrated to the United States. From there on, I have been a resident of California. Most of my life I have lived in the city of Mountain View, which is where I spent my teenage years. Now as an adult I’m currently living in the city of San Jose. These two cities are part of what it is known here as the Silicon Valley. It is a completely different world from the one I know in Lima. As for this page, my intention is to maintain myself active as a writer and be involved in anything that is related to literature; which is one of my biggest passions in life. I would also like to show you a little bit of my work as a poet and writer. At the same time, receive any kind of feedback to improve my skills and style as a writer.

I moved to LA update!

About a month ago I decided to move to Los Angeles. The fun and crazy part about this move is that I had not planned anything in regards to where I was going to live, where I was going to work, etc. Thank God for the support of my friends here and their hospitality. I was able to find an apartment on my fourth day which many people attribute to luck but I can truly say that I was blessed by God to find a place in such a short time. For those of you guys that follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that I’m still writing poetry. And for those that don’t use social media, I’m sorry for not being so active on this blog. I will try my best to keep you guys updated on my future plans. Pretty soon I’m going to publish my first poetry book. Thank you guys and God bless each and everyone that is reading this whenever you may live.
