It's probably too late, but may I suggest four additional names for the program, key figures, each of them, in the new poetries of the Southern Cone: Silvia Guerra and Clemente Padin of Uruguay (a shame the latter is not among participants for the Visual poetries conference below), Reynaldo Jimenez of Argentina (though native of Peru), and Andres Ajens of Chile (also one of the most original critical voices at work). So many others, but if any chance of getting one or two of these folks, the conference could only benefit.
