Feliciano Sánchez Chan

Feliciano Sánchez Chan is a poet and playwright. He collects stories related to Maya culture: tales of supernatural beings, stories of communities, creations of children; as a writer he has given us poetry, novels, and theater. He is a founding member of the National Association of Indigenous Language Writers. In 1993, he won first place in the Itzamná Prize for Maya Language Literature for his novel X-Marcela, and from 1997 to 2000 he was the coordinator of Publications and Diffusion at the House of Writers in Indigenous Languages of Mexico. He is the author of many books of prose, drama, and poetry, and he has coordinated and published his own work in anthologies of drama, short stories, and verse. His first verse collection is set in a dreamlike environment and intimately recreates the explanations provided in Maya cosmovision for the origin of man and his sacred invocations.
