Meet Gisele Schembri
Gisele Schembri has been writing since before her teens, has kept multiple blogs over the years and even wrote three guest articles on a subsidiary website of the NBC. In 2014 she impulsively sent a job application to Malta's best-known magazine when they were looking for an assistant editor. Without any previous professional experience but also a portfolio that showed her worth, the reply from the then editor was an invitation to become a freelance writer for the magazine. It gave her just the boost she needed to truly believe in her work and apply for yet another position, this time as an author on eve.com.mt. Her column on the online magazine went on for over four years. Nowadays Gisele shies away from commercial writing and focuses instead on self-published projects. These include her book of poetry and prose poetry - Amazonite - as well as a new poetry book she is currently working on.
