William Gonzalez on Escaping Negativity and Writing Award-Winning Pieces

Salvadoran American writer William A. Gonzalez is a true testament to the fact that written art can be created out of any life circumstance, no matter how dire or unfortunate.

His self-published book, Black Bubblegum, is filled with authentic ghetto literary pieces—short stories, memoirs, and poetry pieces—that effectively depict inner city life from the perspective of “black bubblegum” splattered across a concrete sidewalk. This unique approach and inspirational soulfulness has recently earned him a first-place finish in the Wild Card category of the New England Book Festival.

William was born in the inner city, and his teenage years were spent “dipping in and dipping out” of liquor stores in his community. He has been exposed to gangs, drugs, and other forms of crime.

Instead of indulging in negativity, he uses these vivid memories to paint pictures of reality that are sure to inspire other people living in struggling communities across America and the world.
