Escribe Aquí / Write Here is an initiative that honors artists working at the intersection of cultural experience and thought. As part of The Betsy’s literary programs, the festival was created in 2015 by two Latinx writers: Cuban-American Young Adult writer Pablo Cartaya and Peruvian born novelist/editor Pedro Medina Leon, Founder/Editor in Chief at Miami-based publisher, Suburbano Ediciones.  The project received initial funding from The Knight Foundation and is sustained with support from The Betsy Community Fund at the Miami Foundation and the PG Family Foundation, under the direction of Dr. Deborah Plutzik Briggs, The Betsy Hotel’s Vice President for Arts and Community Engagement. This year's festival participant's include Elisa Albo, Francisco Aragon, Clayrre Benzadon, Silvia Curbelo, J. Bruce Fuller, Mia Leonin, Alexandra Relagado, and Caridad Moro-Gronlier (curator).
