1985. ‘I remember that many years ago, when we were in the early stages of establishing the Community of Writers of Guatemala, I received a letter from Arturo Arias asking us to look into how we could form an organisation of writers in Guatemala that would be attached to what was then known as the International Writers’ PEN Club. The effort was in vain’.

1985. «Je me souviens qu’il y a de nombreuses années, alors nous commencions à fonder la communauté des Écrivains du Guatemala, j’ai reçu une lettre d’Arturo Arias nous demandant de voir de quelle manière nous pourrions former, au Guatemala, une organisation d’écrivains qui serait rattachée à ce qui était alors le PEN Club international des écrivains. L’effort a été vain».

El esfuerzo fue vano».
