She is interested on intimate writings and she thinks that journals should be a basic tool for writers. She also loves the radically opposite to the “I”: those small stories of others that achieve to tell big things about the human.

Marina Hernández (Madrid, 1989) is a journalist, writer and traveler. She specialized in Travel Journalism in Barcelona (2013) and Literary Studies in Madrid (2017). Conceives life as a set of sojourns or experiments with the aim of learning as much as possible. That’s why she lives half of time on the move, exploring landscapes and people and writing about what she saw, heard, thought and felt; and the other half living in her birthplace, making those learnings last. For a year and a half, she traveled Latin America and published a handmade book calledLava no arde. She said: “it is a journal of how landscape goes through bodies” , because she didn’t find any better definition. Nowadays she is living in Madrid, creating an online house of writing called Maitena Caimán, where she gives workshops to seek own voices. She is interested on intimate writings and she thinks that journals should be a basic tool for writers. She also loves the radically opposite to the “I”: those small stories of others that achieve to tell big things about the human. She writes this stories in Altaïr Magazine and Viaje con Escalas.
