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.”
AuthorIsabel del Río talks about her recent poetry book The Moon at the end of my street, the process of writing, and shares some of her poetry.
“I don’t normally look for inspiration. I’m a great believer in sitting and writing. Some famous writer said ‘the cloth of your trousers should be stuck to the cloth of the chair’ so that means that you sit there and you write.”
