Launch of the anthology ¿Por qué escribo?

Querétaro 2017, 

In a time when anybody can write and be published without the need for editors or criteria, we ask what are the impulses that drive writers and what is the relevance of literature, from an intimate point of view, but also social and transcendental. Despite of the massive consumption and the standardised thought, our daily experience is still been defined by local idiosyncrasies. What is the role of the writers within this contradiction? What can we say here, from here, that cannot be said in other places? The texts included on this anthology could be read as an collective thought essay that tries to answer this questions.
