Eduardo Brum was born on the 10th of September, 1954, in Rabo de Peixe, one of Portugal’s poorest regions.
When he was eleven years old he was sent away to a seminary, where he began to study religion with the idea of entering the priesthood.
On the 25th of April, 1974, the doors of “another world” were opened to him, those of the Faculty of Law at Lisbon, at that time the stage for the student uprisings in which he actively involved himself.
In the Spring of 1975, he abandoned the study of Law, opting instead to study Psychology in the United States, where, for five years he exercised a variety of professions and wrote poetry under the pseudonym of Vital Ferrão.
In 1980, he takes up residence in Lisbon. After a few years as a teacher, he would turn to publishing and media, areas in which, today, he is responsible for various projects, namely the literary journal “Fictions” (launched in April of 2000 under the direction of Luísa Costa Gomes), the only publication of it’s kind in Portugal.
