Second Festival- Talleres de Poesía

The Second  Festival Talleres de Poesía will take place in San Salvador, El Salvador this November 6-12.  Many events are taking place in different cities in order to raise funds for this event that will promote books and literature in El Salvador.

This wonderful project is being organized by children books' author, Jorge Argueta and the Talleres de Poesía committee in San Francisco and San Salvador, with the collaboration of the Director of the National Library of El Salvador, Manlio Argueta.

The Children's Poetry Festival will be held at the National Library in San Salvador in November 2011. Renowned poets will be conducting writing workshops to Salvadoran children and youth. 

The theme of the workshops will be the importance of reading and significance of peace for Salvadoran children and youth. They will also have the opportunity to enhance their writing skills and learn techniques on how to write their experiences through poetry. 

Please enjoy this short video of the 2010 1st Annual Children’s Poetry Festival hosted last year in San Salvador’s Main Library. We hope it will give you an idea of how the Poetry Festival empowered children in a wonderful and positive way.

A small donation will help Talleres de Poesía bring the 2nd Children’s Poetry Festival back to El Salvador in November 2011. Our goal for this year is to bring more books, more children’s authors, more poetry workshops and to take the festival to more cities.  Please help us make this dream come true and to continue building the habit of reading among young people throughout El Salvador.
