Foro de Escritores: Guest Edited by Brian Whitener


The Foro de Escritores is an experimental, collaborative space founded in 2003 for the presentation of poetic, artistic and other works in Santiago, Chile. Based, in part, on the Writers Forum group founded in the 1960s by Bob Cobbing in London, the Foro de Escritores provides a unique space with the Chilean and Santiago poetry and art world for the presentation of and experimentation with hybrid, avant-garde, and popular artistic forms. It is with great pleasure and with deep thanks to all the artists and participants that we present this small selection of work from the past five years of the Foro.
