Creation process

In the process of literary writing there is a problem to be solved, an aesthetic intention that needs a form, an artistic duty that leads to inquiry through the word. Therefore, for creation to take place, a continuous research process is indispensable in which the writer -from a certain state of language, of certain forms of history and culture- produces and modifies cultural and human realities. The "creative praxis", as a search for the nonexistent text, becomes the program's proposal for a different form of research.
