Fondo Las Luciérnagas

Gracias al generoso apoyo del escritor Adalberto Ortiz Ávalos, el Fondo Las Luciérnagas apoya a participantes de México y América Latina mediante subvenciones parciales, de acuerdo a la necesidad comprobada de los postulantes. A diferencia de las becas completas, que se basan en mérito literario, estos apoyos se destinarán a candidatos ya aceptados que requieren apoyo adicional. Para UTV, las luciérnagas simbolizan la luz que arroja la escritura. Así como las luciérnagas, los escritores necesitan de nuestro apoyo para que su luz brille cada vez más fuerte.

Testimonials

I have never felt so supported to achieve what I want. I “leave” this experience with my heart filled with joy, with my brain like a Christmas tree, full of new ideas, and with a sense that I have finally met my tribe.

UTV fue un detonador de ideas y conexiones. Llegué con una idea y volví a casa con la tercera parte de un libro.

“When I was feeling overwhelmed at the sheer talent and accomplishments of the faculty, a fellow writing student said to me, “The only difference between them and us is time.”

Martha Morrison
