With workshops, documentary screenings, dialogue tables and book presentations, the Caribbean Journalism Festival will be held in person for the first time in Mérida, so it is invited people to attend and participate in the framework of the Yucatán International Reading Fair (FILEY) from Monday, March 11 to Thursday, the 14th.

This fourth edition of the Festival is possible thanks to the Michael Jacobs Foundation, whose Travel Chronicle scholarship holders will enrich the offering. There was also the support of the Mérida City Council and Gatopardo magazine.

Among the activities, the dialogue table “Balam, the traces of the jaguar in Latin America” stands out, in which Anuar Hernández from Pronatura, Lucero Vaca, and the writer and journalist, Santiago Wills, will participate and share a presentation with JS Tennant and Katia Rejón on Crónica Viajera.

Santiago Wills is one of the most active guests at this festival, as he will also present his first novel “Jaguar”, a semi-finalist for the Herralde Prize. “We will talk about what long-term journalism is like, what we work on and see as an act of resistance,” he said.

On the other hand, the journalist celebrated that in Yucatán there is interest in investigative journalism; and, from his perspective, he will also be nourished by the experiences of colleagues who participate in the events of the Caribbean Journalism Festival.
