Starting tomorrow on February, 6th 2012 at 7PM:
Yago Cura, publisher of the online journal Hinchas de Poesia (www.hinchasdepoesia.com), will serve as facilitator of the free workshops. Each session will address the work of a different 20th Century Latin American poet, and allow students to generate a piece inspired by some of their signature poems.
The class will be taught in English but the poems Yago Cura uses will be read in Spanish and English.
