Promoting authors and attracting audiences to reading

Promoting authors and attracting audiences to reading

 

The Mecenas Publishing House, the flagship publishing house of the province of Cienfuegos, is part of the Territorial Publishing System of the National Book Institute.

It is the main institutional space for the creation and dissemination of authors in the Provincial Center of Books and Literature of the Pearl of the South.

Its mission is to facilitate the exchange and promotion of literature and books for authors, publishers, readers, specialists in different intellectual fields and the public. This purpose is common to all areas.

Founded three decades ago, during which it defended the crucial mission of books and reading, the Cienfuegos house allowed the emergence of an impressive group of literary materials by local and national authors in the most diverse genres.

Many novel creators thank the institution for the release of their first texts. Mecenas has played, and continues to play, a central role in the possibility of disseminating narrative, poetic, essayistic creation and intellectual thought in a broad sense.

The Editorial is related to creative processes in which diversity and originality constitute a strength and efficiency will depend on knowing how to take advantage in each case of the particular edges, without this meaning to give space to improvisation and unilateralism.

In the current 2021, Mecenas expanded its publishing projects, opening the door to digital publishing with the text by Cienfuegos writer Alexis García Somodevilla, El deshollinador (The Chimney Sweeper).

Other titles will follow progressively.
