Drunken Boat seeks work for a special section: Librotraficante and the New Latino Renaissance.
In solidarity with the Librotraficante movement, sparked by Arizona’s HB2281 and the Tucson Unified School District’s resulting ban of Mexican American Studies, Drunken Boat seeks work by creators of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, spoken word, and experimental/mixed media that honors our country’s Latino heritage. The portfolio embraces quantum demographics, which, in the words of Librotraficante founder Tony Diaz, “pinpoint and celebrate the bridges that already exist between us.” Submissions will be considered through this lens of cultural intersection as it pertains to the New Latino Renaissance. Submit
Drunken Boat seeks poems that engage with debt: the friction between desire and limits, the intersection of ownership and obligation.
Poems need not be limited to the political. Special attention will be given to work that considers form when exploring this theme. Limit three poems. Submit
