José B. González on Andrés Montoya

José B. González
with "Untitled" by Malaquias Montoya

“I chose to contribute to the Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize Initiative by purchasing this beautiful print because it is a great reminder to look back. As writers, we're often preoccupied with the future—e.g. our next creative work, our next publication, and so forth. But this print is a reminder of how so many of our literary opportunities were made possible by the likes of Andrés Montoya. I know I owe him. And this is my way of thanking him and appreciating his legacy.”
