The Flamenco Poets Society is a non-profit organization based in Houston with the mission to enhance cultural education for the general public.
Poetry is a passion for sharing our experiences of love, humanity, honor, death and reminiscences.
The Flamenco Poets Society is an organization dedicated to promoting an appreciation and understanding of "Latin American & Spanish poets as well as the Flamenco Arts". The Flamenco Poets Society strives to convey the emotions of these poets who have recorded their experiences through the written word.
We organize two readings per year, and our guest readers have read bilingual programs featuring the works of Federico Garcia Lorca, Pablo Neruda, Gabriela Mistral and Sor Juana Inéz de la Cruz. In addition the society presents an annual Storytellers Event and our popular Café Cantante Series blends poetry with flamenco music and dance.
The vision of The Flamenco Poets Society is to promote education and understanding of the Latin American & Spanish literary culture.
