About Us Literal Magazine

About Us, Literal Magazine

Literal, Latin American Voices, winner of 2 CELJ Awards and 4 Lone Star Awards, offers its pages with a dual purpose: as a forum where the most important Latin American creative expressions converge and as a vehicle for the expression of new voices.

Thus Literal provides a medium for the critique and diffusion of the Latin American literature and art, recognizing its potential strength as a point of departure for understanding that the broad cultural universe is not overshadowed by any single language, but is bathed  in the light of a unified spirit.


Literal, voces latinoamericanas,— ganadora de 2 premios CELJ y 4 Lone Star—, tiene un doble propósito: ser un foro donde confluyan  las expresiones artísticas latinoamericanas más importantes y, a la vez, abrir un espacio que permita a las nuevas voces  encontrar un sitio dónde expresarse.

Así también Literal da cabida a la crítica y difusión del arte latinoamericano en su sentido más generoso, atisbando la posibilidad de convertirse, también, en una voz de referencia obligada para la comprensión del amplio universo cultural que se reúne ahora ya no bajo una misma lengua, sino cobijados a la sombra de un espíritu similar.
