Welcome to the first issue of Hinchas de Poesia, a digital codex that brings together the works of "American" artists. When we say "American" we mean it in the way that Jose Marti did when he wrote, Nuestra America.
Hinchas believes America is the sum of her parts, not just Canada and North America. We believe that the idea of America should extend from la Patagonia in Argentina to the outer exurbs of Toronto. And we feel that the vital interaction that transpires between artists should not be obstructed by racial, national, or party lines.
Hinchas believes Latin America is as much a part of the idea of America as North America, the Caribbean, and Canada are. Our first issue features the work of writers and artists that we consider Pan-Americans; you might say that the issue solely exists to big them up.
