‘Poetry is an act of love, and just like love, it is also a human right. ‘
Musician, poet and actor Christian Ravello talks about childhood memories, a life-changing trip to Chile, rock latino and the film Here Out West.
Growing up, the country was an idea in my head, but not the one I knew when I went there. It was like sort of looking at a city in a strange new way, yet understanding things such as the way people talk, act and behave.
In my work, I prefer to locate my sensibilities as contextual, something related to culture, time, and place rather than identity. I am interested in how ideas get corrupted, how certain figures corrode with time.
‘Gender equity does not start at university or when you graduate; it starts when you are born and we need books to help us understand this.’
‘Writing this book was hard. Some stories made me cry even before I began writing them simply because of the research I had to do.’
Uruguayan-Australian writer Natalia Figueroa Barroso talks with Puentes Review about family, writing in Spanglish and why she won’t be happy until there is more Afro-Latinx and Indigenous Latinx representation on the screen.
‘Every book has its own tempo. I can’t say: “Today I will start a poetry book.” Instead, I write every day; I work on my poems.’
Poet and journalist Beatriz Copello talks about her first impressions of Australia and her latest poetry collection Witches, Women & Words.
Theatre maker, producer and arts manager Caro Duca founded Teatro Latinx Perth now Espacio Latinx Perth to bring together the Latinx community in Western Australia.
Argentinian-born photographer and poet Daniel Sacchero remembers his childhood in Argentina and talks about his first poetry collection, Distancia Cero.
Maria Elena Lorenzin talks with Puentes Review about writing and the Red de Escritoras de Microficción (Network of Women Microfiction Writers).
