Transcript There is an untold success story on the UH campus. "The Americas Review," published by the University's Arte Publico Press, has received a Citation of Achievement from the National Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines for its spring 1986 issue. The journal, which only considers works by Hispanic- American contributors, publishes fiction, poetry, plays, essays and art about Hispanics in America. "It is committed to the inclusion of United States Hispanic writers in the tradition of American letters," said Julian Olivares, co-editor of the journal and associate professor of Spanish and Mexican-American studies at UH. Olivares said the quarterly published journal received the NCCLM citation for creativity, innovative editorial procedure and contribution to public awareness about the input of Hispanic writers to American literature. The NCCLM, a non-profit organization in New York City, promotes literary magazines in the United States. It provides money from public and private sources to both the magazines and their published authors. Eleven literary reviews were awarded citations this year by a panel of judges selected by the organization. Approximately 1600 reviews are published annually in the United States, Olivares said. Olivares said it was commonly assumed for many years that all American literature was written by Anglos in English. But political movements of the '60s fostered a literary movement among America's immigrants, who realized they had something to contribute. Consequently, they began to record their experiences and feelings about life in their adopted country. "The United States is a pluralistic society. The review wants to provide a medium for the expression of a different view of the reality of this country," Olivares said. "The Americas Review," which draws contributors from all over the United States, includes work of individuals recognized for their excellence with such awards as Guggen- heims, American Book and Obie Awards. It also cultivates and publishes new talents, he said. This spring's issue is the first using the title, "The Americas Review." The journal's original name, "Revista Chicano - Riquena," was changed to reflect the increased ethic diversity of people with Hispanic origins in the U.S. since the journal's founding 14 years ago. Olivares said the review, founded by Nicholas Kanellos at a small mid western university, has become the major outlet of Hispanic expression in the arts. Kanellos also created Arte Publico Press to publish reviews and books by Hispanic authors. When he came to UH in 1980, Kanellos brought the journal and Arte Publico Press with him. Olivares said the press, which published 2C books last year, is now the major publisher of books by U.S Hispanics. Kanellos received an editorial grant in 1983, but this year'* citation is the first major aware that the publication has received. — Marilyn Swansor 164
