Ediciones Vocesueltas

The small number of presses that publish in Spanish seem to ignore the increasing transnational flow between Latin America and United States Latinos and, in particular, the fact that this country is the fourth largest Spanish-speaking country in the world. The need for written accessible cultural work is very real and has not been fully addressed by any particular institution, not even academia.

The history of creative writing workshops is long among the collective of writers that contribute to contratiempo. Ediciones Vocesueltas was created to promote the work of local Spanish language authors and to make known the quality literature written in Chicago. In 2007, the book of short stories that inspired the name of the Vocesueltas imprint, was born.

contratiempo ha creado Ediciones Vocesueltas para diseminar y promover la literatura escrita en español en Chicago. Estos proyectos de publicación conjunta con los autores han dado frutos desde el 2007, habiéndose publicado dos libros a la fecha, uno de cuentos, y el segundo, de poesía. Debemos un agradecimiento especial a los autores publicados en Ediciones Vocesueltas, sin cuyo ímpetu y generosidad no hubiéramos podido establecer este sello editorial.
