Centroamérica cuenta¨: How literary festivals contribute to social discourses and cultural dialogues


What possibilities are there for influencing social issues through literature? Writers from North, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Europe have found a dynamic and inviting space for culture in Centroamérica cuenta. It offers them a platform to present themselves and their works to local and global readers and to enter into a cultural dialogue with colleagues, publishers, editors and translators from all over the world. The Nicaraguan writer Sergio Ramírez reflects on the festival, the challenges and opportunities of the book market and book circulation, as well as on the developments in the rapidly changing literary field of the Spanish-speaking world.
