Excited to announce the 2nd annual Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series, featuring three events with the Cartonera Collective, hosted by The Poetry Center at SFSU, Nov 7-8.
Cartonera Collective is a project of Cardboard House Press, devoted to the creation of spaces and media for cultural, artistic, and literary development. We publish writing, art, and contemporary thought from Latin America and Spain, and host bilingual events, community projects and workshops. Our work serves as a platform to exchange ideas and highlight meanings that stimulate diverse human connections and social actions. All of our publications are bilingual—English and Spanish. To date we have published authors from Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain and Uruguay.
