My name is Juliano Zaffino.
I am a writer of poetry and drama, as well as a sometime-director. Currently I am undertaking a PhD titled ‘Cutting Shakespeare: Promptbook Practice in Stratford and Beyond’, based jointly at the Shakespeare Institute and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
I hold an MA (with Distinction) in Shakespeare Studies from the Shakespeare Institute, and a BA (Hons) in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford.
Since 2016 I have independently run the personalised book subscription service, -YourShelf-, with subscribers all over the world and some pretty cool VIP fans, too.
I was born and raised in Canada. I’ve lived in the UK since I was 10 years old, and now reside in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
