János Térey

- Hungary -

János Térey was born in Debrecen in 1970, and graduated in Hungarian Literature and Linguistics from Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest in 1996. In 1997–98 he worked as editor for Cosmopolitan, ever since he has been a freelance writer. He has twelve volumes, most of them poetry, with one volume of fiction and several verse novels and dramatic poems. Térey was arguably the most prolific and dynamic creative artist in Hungarian literature today. His energy and drive have repeatedly proved able to bring up to date and breathe new life into poetic genres that were considered forgotten. János Térey passed away on June 3, 2019.
