From its very beginning this festival was born as a bilingual festival for writers. Nobody in San Miguel should be excluded from participating. People come from Australia Greece or as far as Japan to join in. Mexico has a very low reading level among the general population. Thus the festival organizers decided to include both Mexican and foreign writers. They wanted people who shared their joy of reading and writing. All conferences are simultaneously translated during the festival as well as most workshops. This allows the community to mingle and enjoy both the written and spoken word. The festival can dress up to celebrate a theme for example migration around the world. Then the organizers plan some of the activities around these topics. Susan Page started this event which has continued to exist throughout the years. It has grown so much that it hosts more than 100 activities. These include panels special events editorial help in both English and Spanish. The scholarships that the program grants to students and emerging authors are a highlight of the festival. The price can be very high for some people up to 700 USD. So the festival works to sponsors up to 25 people who enjoy and take part in it.
