Sí, Aquí Hablamos Español!

No Se Habla Espanol Banner

There are millions of people who inhabit the Earth; many speak some form of English, a language whose poetry dates as far back as the mid to late six hundreds of the common era. Over the centuries the written and spoken language has grown through technological developments such as papyrus, the printing press, typewriters, and the internet, as well as cultural occurrences like industrialism, the canonization of literature, colonization and globalization. The modern English language is an amalgamation of influences from around the world with regional dialects such as Creolé, and pidgin fusions such as Spanglish and Hinglish.

The No Se Habla Español Anthology features the poetry of a group of multilingual writers whose native tongue is Español, their poetry is in English, Spanish and code-switches between the two languages. Contributors include Los Angeles Poet Society founder Jessica Willson-Cardenas, award nominated Art Director Pogo Saito, Iris De Anda the host of Writers Underground Open Mic, Victor Sotomayor (Oz Monologues), surrealist painter Magdalena Murillo, and many more.

“The idea for this anthology of poems and short stories came from the prompt – No Se Habla Español, that inspired me to write the opening piece. When I finished writing it, I thought – why not reach out with this prompt to my community of Los Angeles and beyond?”
