about us

La Piscucha Magazine is a multilingual literature, arts, and culture magazine created by Salvadorans within and beyond national borders. Co-founded by writers and editors living in El Salvador and the United States, the magazine was born out of a desire to rebuild communities torn apart by war, migration, and deportation. In the homeland, high shipping costs and language barriers prevent Salvadorans from accessing the work of their diasporic kin; transversely, Salvadoran books frequently have low print runs and are only available in Central American markets. In the diaspora, the US education system and the trauma of migrating as refugees oftentimes prevent Salvadoran-Americans and their children from accessing vital elements of their culture. Through literature, art, critical essays, interviews, and other media, La Piscucha Magazine strives to amplify the voices of Salvadoran everywhere.
