Children in El Salvador are waiting for the 4th Poetry Festival

Talleres de Poesia is a group of writers and volunteers who organize an annual poetry festival in El Salvador. Our goal is bring 4 bi-lingual children's book authors to El Salvador where they offer poetry readings and writing workshops to approximately 800 children from all corners of the country. We also include 4 Salvadoran authors in the festival. It is a 3-day event held at the National Library in San Salvador. We work with 2 non-profit organizations in El Salvador that coordinate bringing the children to the library on buses from all over the countryside.
