Valparaíso Ediciones has been a bridge between cultures since its foundation. Some of the most important poets from the United States, like Maya Angelou, Rita Dove, Natasha Trethewey, Carolyn Forché, Sharon Olds, Jericho Brown, Charles Simic, Billy Collins, Kevin Young, Juan Felipe Herrera, Yusef Komunyakaa, Donald Hall and Mary Oliver, among others, have been published in a bilingual format in Spain, Mexico and Colombia. In a like fashion, Valparaíso Ediciones has introduced American readers to Spanish language poets such as Alfonsina Storni, Federico García Lorca, José Hierro, Ángel González and Luis García Montero.

We believe in poetry as an instrument of good, as a way of looking at the world from the vantage point of another. This otherness is the characteristic that defines us and is what we defend. Our defense of poetry is the defense of a universal voice that can bring together countries and human beings.

In order to continue on this mission we need your support.
