Contratiempo NFP started as a monthly Spanish-language magazine conceived in April 2003 by a group of Latino writers living in Chicago, and it is now a 501(c)3 tax exempt literary and publishing center whose mission is to preserve and highlight the cultural identity and contributions of the Spanish-speaking Latino population of the United States.
