||Raimo S. Wallin|
Finnish novelist, playwright, poet, and publisher, whose first books, Alttari (The shrine; play) and Matkan loppu (The end of the journey; collection of short stories) appeared in 1967. Raimo S. Wallin has also written non-fiction for schools. His textbooks of creative writing and philosophy of life were among the first in their field in the 1970s and 1980s.
"Hyvä kirjoitus on selkeän ajatuksen ilmaisu." (from Luova kirjoitus ABCD, 1998; A good writing is the expression of a clear thought.)
After retiring from his work as a teacher, Wallin devoted himself to
music, writing, editing, and publishing poetry through his publishing
company Kustannus Sokrates. In the 1990 he has presented in several
schools and libraries his programme about the poet Larin Kyösti. Since the mid-2000s, he has divided his time between Helsinki and Sammatti. Wallin was married from 1972 to Terttu Wallin, also a teacher and writer, who published Koulu on elämää (1982), Teetkös näin näin näin (1984), and Hymyile plaani (1998).
