Jessica Muñoz's insight:

La Salita Café is Puerto Rico's latest Spoken Word, Poetry and Live Music Cafe where one can catch live performances from local artists!  Our mission is to discover, showcase and be the platform for emerging local Puertorican talent from the Island.  We strive to empower, foster and promote Puerto Rico's local artists and revive traditional music; defending our Taino culture every step of the way! 

 

We inspire positive social conscience in a creative circle.  Our values are Community, Dialogue and Culture.  As a proud Boricua and advocate of the Puerto Rico Independent movement, we also want to validate and show our support to similar organizations and link them so that visitors can do the same by encouraging to give back to the community!

 

At La Salita Cafe, our mission statement is: “Because if we don’t defend our culture, we will lose it!”

Poetry Magazine Turns 100 Published by the Poetry Foundation

Poetry Magazine Turns 100 Published by the Poetry Foundation | Puerto Rico's latest Spoken Word, Poetry and Live Music Cafe | Scoop.it

Read the latest issue of Poetry magazine-- the oldest monthly devoted to verse in the English speaking world-- or browse over 100 years of the magazine in the archive.

 

Founded in Chicago by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry magazine began with the “Open Door”:

 

May the great poet we are looking for never find it shut, or half-shut, against his ample genius! To this end the editors hope to keep free of entangling alliances with any single class or school. They desire to print the best English verse which is being written today, regardless of where, by whom, or under what theory of art it is written.
