Nuestra Palabra: Latino Writers Having Their Say was founded in Houston in April of 1998 by writer Tony Diaz. The misson of Nuestra Palabra is to promote Latino literature and literacy.
Nuestra Palabra began with monthly showcases and has grown into a grass roots movement that has changed the world. NP strives to cultivate and promote talent from our community alongside literary icons. NP is the base of the pyramid for such projects as The Latino Book and Family Festival, The Nuestra Palabra Radio Show, the Librotraficante Movement, MAS Texas and more.
This website is intended to document this history of our movement. If you have stories or pictures to share please send them to us. This is our word. This is our history. This is our time.
