Hi y’all! Just a quick post to share some recent Rotura-related happenings.
First off, thank you to everyone who has shown support for Rotura (Black Lawrence Press)! Whether you’ve snagged a copy, read some of the poems online, or heard me at a virtual event, the support and connection mean a lot.
Speaking of poems online, happy to share that three poems from Rotura were featured in last month’s issue of Poetry is Currency.
Continuing the Rotura-related thread, I am excited to share this interview for Mass Poetry’s “Getting to Know” series. I share a bit about origins and influences as well as insights about the new book.
Lastly: poet, scholar, and dynamic human being, Urayoán Noel, was also kind enough to include Rotura in his article “‘La Treintena’ 2022: 30+ Books of Latinx Poetry.” Honored to have Rotura featured alongside recent collections by Raquel Salas Rivera, Rio Cortez, and Darrel Alejandro Holnes among other essential, vibrant voices.
I’m transitioning from spring teaching into summer teaching as well as wrapping up the latest issue of Salamander, amongst other endeavors. If you’re reading this, I hope you are managing in your own world as best you can. Here’s to us working out how to show compassion to ourselves as well as each other.
