Greetings, I'm Nelly Requena, a Venezuelan-American citizen living in Florida since 2004.

I am raising funds to support the efforts of my brother-in-law the writer Marcos Tarre and my sister Yajaira Requena de Tarre (a socio cultural event organizer)  to hold the first gathering  of crime fiction writers in Caracas, called Semana Negra Caracas, festival de novela y cine negro  2017, from October 23er to November 4th

I want to help them so they an  put together Semana Negra Caracas 2017 @SemananegraCcs, ( In Spanish "novela negra"of the french tradition "novel noir " refers to genres of  crime fiction, detective or police narrative and trillers)

About the event
SEMANA NEGRA DE CARACAS,from October 23 to November 4, 2017.
It's at the same time  an artistic event for the crime fiction venezuelan novelist, and  also, experts, analist and  journalists providing  workshops of real life cases .
Yajaira y Marcos haved created along  other writters a site of encounter of crime fiction writters called La Orilla Negra Venezuela @OrillaNegraV

Semana Negra Caracas is a trully unique literary encounter organized by authors (and the first of a kind in Venezuela)That has flourished thanks to the voluntary support of  writers, journalists, friends, and donated art spaces.

The Program Includes:
* Books and literary novelties, like " Relatos de la OrillaNegra"( Stories of the Black Shore)a book of stories from 17 Venezuelan writers around the world, who open a door of suspense, love, pain, blood, hate and humor to understand the dimension of violence  present, latent or imaginary .

  * Get-together with  university students-  a meeting  with literaure and journalism students  the  writters.

* Workshops  with expert journalists and analists of real life cases, "Ficcion de casos reales" y " La Voz en el gatillo". Literature and journalism go hand to hand .
* Gathering between writters,  and  young theater actors dramatizing texts " Lo negro en el Teatro".

* Single edition of the Tabloid "Ink Shield", designed to mix the informational  content and  the literary formats of stories, poetry graphics etc.

To  produced a books trailer and the video material in order to keep informed some of the collaborating writers living in different countries including USA.

- Finally, we aspire to bring Marcos –a truly talented writer– and  all that Venezuelan crime fiction literature to Miami for the Miami Book Fair in November, which would allow ,the extended Venezuelan community living in Florida to gather and celebrate their cultural heritage through literature.

How soon you need the funds?
All the organization, volunteering and donation of texts and art spaces has worked out through determination and passion, but the costs of producing the material now threaten this wonderful and creative program.
They need our help right now!

 What the support will mean to me?
*By supporting this event, we're  promoting and fosting the Venezuelan literarture  cultural heritage,
* Alow us to fell  that we're making part of this  effort to preserve a very important part of the  Venezuelan identity.
*The tipe of crime fiction narrative written and created by Venezuelan will always show that submerged social reality that literature restore and preserve, as an historical documentary .
*By bringing a Marcos to the cultural and literary gathering with our fellow Venezuelan community  is as important as  necessary for the large community of countrimen that are  making a living and developing roots in Florida.

Please join me and let's be part of Semana Negra Ccs
Thank you very much for your kind support and may God bless you !
