Cuban writer to achieve the Latin American theater award in the United States
José Luís, one of the most interesting narrators from this eastern city deserved the recognition of the competition monitored by the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and the Spanish section from the U.S. university with the work titled Noche Cubana .

In the third edition of the competition, created in 2006, took part 104 authors from about sixteen countries, hoping for an award whose value lies in the publication of the work in the Latin American Theater magazine, apart from a trip to that higher level institution.

He was born in Holguín 53 years ago and graduated from Spanish and Literature specialty at the José de la Luz y Caballero Higher Pedagogical Institute. He started his journalistic career in the pages of the provincial weekly magazine ¡ahora! And he is currently working in the provincial broadcasting company Radio Angulo as a radio writer.

The literary work of José Luis won in 1979 the national award of Literary Workshops in Varadero and shortly afterwards he achieved his first Award of the City of Holguín, with the short story book Los silencios del ruiseñor (The silence of the nightingale).

In 2001 he won a mention in the Casa de las Américas competition with the work Historia de una foto (History of a picture) and he is a collaborator of the Juventud Rebelde newspaper as well as the magazines El Caimán Barbudo and Chasqui.
