ASU's Hispanic Research Center has launched a new web site: Latina/o Poetry Community. Its goals are to:
*Create an Internet-based creative exchange portal for communication among Latina/o poets, poetry and literary organizations, and others committed to Latina/o poetry
*Promote the work of individual poets from all the Latina/o heritage areas both in the United States and abroad, and increase the audience for Latina/o poetry
*Encourage greater recognition by the general public of Latina/o poetry and poets through education and outreach
This web site is long overdue. My gratitude to all those involved in creating it.
The coolest part of the web site is the poet profiles. I love poet profiles! Here is my humble profile. And here are three of my poems:
Our Completion: Oil on Wood: Tino Rodríguez: 1999
Se Me Olvidó Otra Vez
It's all about me, even when I post about community. Shame on me!
A lot of the profiles are still blank. Poets, don't keep me from your biographical information! Emmy, Diana, Sheryl, and Blas: I'm talking to you. And Reyes, I hope to see you there too!
But some profiles are already filled out:
