Silvio Alberto (Tip) Marugg (Willemstad, Curaçao, 16 December 1923–22 April 2006) was a Dutch-Antillian writer and poet of Venezuelan/Swiss heritage. Marugg wrote three novels in Dutch: Weekendpelgrimage (1957), In de straten van Tepalka (1967); and De morgen loeit weer aan (1988), which was nominated for a major Dutch literature prize. His style is best characterized as a variation on magic realism. Marugg also wrote several poems (published in literary magazines as well as his book of poems Afschuw van Licht) and a Dikshonario Erotiko; a dictionary of all words with an erotic meaning used in Papiamentu.
