Translating Contemporary Latin American Poets and Writers: Embracing, Resisting, Escaping the Magnetic Pull of the Capital

Indisputably, in any given Latin American country much of the best poetry and prose is being produced in the capital. But equally indisputably, some of the most interesting and accomplished work is coming out of provincial cities and villages, the US-Mexico and other border regions, and even from abroad, in places as farflung as Houston, New York and, yes, Hungary. How to find, select, and work with contemporary Latin American poets and writers? Is it really more challenging outside the capital or, in some cases, is it easier?
