This wonderful project is being organized by children books' author, Jorge Argueta and the Talleres de Poesia commitee in SF and San Salvador, with the collaboration of the Director of the National Library of El Salvador, Salvadoran author, Manlio Argueta. Many authors will participate, including Red Room's Jorge Argueta and Rene Colato Lainez.
The Children's Poetry Festival will be held at the National Library in San Salvador in November 8-10, 2010. Renowned poets will be conducting writing workshops to Salvadoran children and youth.
The theme of the workshops will be the importance of reading and significance of peace for Salvadoran children and youth. They will also have the opportunity to enhance their writing skills and learn techniques on how to write their experiences through poetry.
