Miami Dade College

Hialeah Campus

For over twelve years, Dr. Ivonne Lamazares and Prof. Victor Calderin have been working with students to publish Café Cultura, Hialeah Campus’s Literary and Arts magazine. Café Cultura is published once a year and the students work year-round in collecting the poetry, fiction, photography and visual art pieces from their fellow students. Over the years, the magazine has garnered local recognition from the City of Hialeah, won the General Excellence Awards multiple times from the Florida College System Publications Association, and earned the prestigious national Gold Crown award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The student works collected in the magazine celebrate the artistic talent and creative heart of our campus.
Professor Ivonne Lamazares shares her views and insights on how Hialeah Campus' literary magazine have changed her life and the life of the students.
