CMAS Hosts CantoMundo 2013
Posted: May 29, 2013
More than 20 nationally recognized Latina/o poets from across the United States will gather in Austin, Texas for CantoMundo 2013.
CantoMundo is a national organization dedicated to supporting and developing Latina/o poets and poetry. CantoMundo provides a space where Latina/o poets can nurture and enhance their poetics; lecture and learn about aspects of Latina/o poetics currently not being discussed by the mainstream publishers and critics; and network with peer poets to enrich and further disseminate Latina/o poetry.
The poets participating in CantoMundo 2013, along with two national award-winning poets, Valerie Martinez and Willie Perdomo, will present their work in the Black Box Theater of the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center (600 River Street, Austin, Texas) on Friday, June 28, 2013, and Saturday, June 29, 2013. The readings are scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m.
CantoMundo 2013 is sponsored by the Center for Mexican American Studies (UT Austin) and the Department of English (UT Austin), with support from Letras Latinas and Corazón Bilingüe.
