Currently Scheduling for 2020!

January 14, 2020

Let’s work together.

I can create a reading or workshop to your needs. I’ll post a list of topics I am working on for 2020 soon.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

She gives readings, lectures, writing workshops and is a lecturer at UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, Contra Costa College in Chicana/Latino/a/x Studies, creative writing and LGBTQ studies. She is the editor of the forthcoming “CentroMariconadas” inspired by Horacio Roque Ramirez, an anthology of queer and trans Central American writing.
