The rich tradition of writers, poets and essayists has taken the literature of Villa Clara to the Cuban literary spotlight.

The investigator and folklorist Samuel Feijoo, Samuel Garcia Perez, Jorge Mañach and Juan Marinello are among the most illustrious names in the history of the local literature. The Capiro Editorial House has gained territory over other national editorial houses, giving artists the possibility of transcending their work. Annually, a new edition of the Literary Award Fundacion de la Ciudad calls writers from all over the island to participate in genres like journalism, novel, essay and poetry.
