Gintautas Dabrišius was bon in Sarginė, Prienai region, on October 10, 1950. He studied at Kaunas Gardening Technical School and later worked at the Academy of Agriculture. Silently he continued writing poems and gave himself out by the first book in 1982. From 1990 he is a member of the Lithuanian Writers’ Union. He should be living in Kaunas but presently lives in the countryside along with bees and poetry. “I have been writing honestly and stayed invisible“, assured G.Dabrišius even after he was awarded with the crown of the Poetry Spring of 2006.
