Miguel Ángel May May

Miguel Ángel May May began his work with monographs and compilations; he has dedicated much of his effort to the development of reading and writing among children and young people through creative writing workshops in Maya language, which he has led in Yucatán and Quintana Roo. In 1987, he became the editor of the publication U Yajal Maya Winiko’ob and part of the editorial board of the journal U Tzikbalo’ob Xunáan Kaab. In 1998, he received the Medal for Artistic Merit from the Government of the State of Yucatán. He has produced and directed radio programs, and he has published many books of poetry and prose; his writing has also appeared in several anthologies. Maya cosmovision flows through his stories in a personal and moving way; these stories oscillate between magical realism and the fantastic, giving Maya language a place in the concert of universal literature.
