What is the mark of a true writer? A true writer is one who conveys a world of wit and ideas in his writing and loves the process of creating so much he can’t ever leave it behind. By these markers, Brazilian literary force Jaime Garcia Dias is a true writer, and one who is proud to claim the title for himself. He’s not the only one who is proud of his accomplishments, however.
Wikipedia shows that Jaime Garcia Dias was given the White Crane Award for Achievement in Literature in 2001, which was a huge sign for the author that he was on the right path in his life. He had long wished to become a writer, following in the footsteps of his father, who was also a literary figure in Brazil. The award inspired Dias to continue his work as a storyteller. Now, with over ten books to his credit, there’s no doubt this writer is a voice that will not be stopped, no matter how difficult the journey.
His many YouTube videos dedicated to this principle show that Jaime Garcia Dias is a writer who believes in young voices and in inspiring them just as he was inspired by his own teachers and other writers. His CrunchBase work history shows that the author joined the teaching staff of his alma mater, the Carioca Academy in Brazil, early on in his career, and in 1993 he was named Vice President of the School. His leadership of the school helped point it in the direction of journalistic studies, where it is now known for its academic prowess. There’s no doubt that the association with this notable writer has helped establish the school’s place as a leading academic center in Brazil.
Today Jaime Garcia Dias continues his hard work in forging new paths in creative writing. His 2013 series of stories in the Jornal do Brazil was very well received and lead to an offer to continue as a series writer, and it also saw his blog really take off as well. This exciting development was another moment of inspiration for the author, who continues on his lifelong path of writing and creating on a daily basis.
