New Spanish, Latin American, and British authors present their first narrative experiences in a unique sampling of cross-cultural integration. Students of Spanish Language and Culture from University College London (UCL) and participants from the narrative workshop from El Ojo de la Cultura Hispanoamericana, will come together to read works from their recently published books.
Cuentos cuánticos y otros microrrelatos. Curated by Tyler Fisher
Sometimes, the shortest stories can stimulate the most enduring reflections. The anthology Cuentos cuánticos y otros microrrelatos (2018) brings together fifty very short stories. It constitutes the creative effort of a group of students who are mastering Spanish as a second language. Writing in the heart of London, the authors look towards the literary traditions of the Hispanic world. Their book comprises a wonderful variety of memorable characters and narratives, ranging from a very philosophical dog to an imperial cat, from a mysterious painting by Vermeer to a lost page from Plato.
Participants: Tyler Fisher, Alice Franklin, Hannah Frost, Catherine George, Jeff Gu, H.M. Harrington, Karina Lickorish Quinn, Nadia McLeod, Sam Stevenson, Karolina Szpejnowska.
