    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The poems of Jordan, Spain, Ecuador, Iraq, Morocco, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Panama, Honduras and Cuba, among others, will be heard in Costa starting today for the International Poetry Festival 2013.

    More than 13 international poets will gather through October 25th at the Central American capital, said the Ministry of Culture of Costa Rica.

    Costa Rican Vice Minister of Youth, Irene Morales, said the Ministry of Culture and Youth (MCJ) wants this festival to “get away from convention.”  The artists will share their work and life experiences.

    “The idea of ​​this type of alliance is to support cultural and artistic initiatives created by civil society, strengthen the support of MCJ to reach more people in different parts of the world,” said Morales.

    Throughout the week, the poets will be performing in venues such as theaters, museums, and art galleries as well as in prisons, in places like San Jose, Cartago, Heredia, Limon and San Jose, among others.

    According to event organizers, the main objective of the festival is to generate a greater interest in poetry among the population, especially in young people.  (EFE)
