When Letras Latinas approached Noemi Press about starting what would become The AKRILICA series, one of the writers we had in mind was elena minor.
It's possible that her name is more associated with PALABRA: A Magazine of Chicano & Latino Literary Art than with her own creative work.
We intend for that to change with the imminent launch--March 24 to be precise--of TITULADA, elena's first full-length book of poetry.
While we' d hoped to have the book ready for this year's AWP, for now we'll content ourselves with this beautifully designed postcard with a cool blurb by Roberto Tejada.
Come by the Noemi Press table (L 10) or the Letras Latinas table (N 23) to get one. And think about picking up volume 1 of the AKRILICA series, Boxing the Compass by Sandy Florian.
In the meantime, come hear elena read her work this coming Friday at The Event 2: An AWP Off-Site Reading and Party.
