Mexican poet Paloma Zozaya shares with Literary South’s community three poems, talks about writing, and about living ten years in Honduras.
“We are all poets but it’s a faculty that can get blocked or erased or forgotten. I think poetry is not just writing; it is in everything… it’s contained in a painting, even in the horror there is poetry. Poetry is natural to life.”
Consuelo Rivera-Fuentes talks about her different literary projects and how Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda inspired her to write from a very young age; and she shares three beautiful poems.
“Sometimes I feel as if I have a volcano of words and they need to just come out; and some of them can burn people or can burn myself but I feel whatever it is inside me… I want to express it in writing.”
In this episode of Literary South, Colombian poet Sonia Quintero talks about her latest poetry and illustration book Metáforas de Dos Mundos.
She also discusses her poetry group in Stratford and shares some of her poems.
