Mi gente! Welcome to THE FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY of La Esquina Open Mic! This will be a super special reading to all those who have been with us during this last year! Bring your drinks! Bring all your poems! Bring your friends! We’re reading until the night falls!
This month we have two very special features for you: Susana Praver-Perez & Rich Villar!
Your host this month will be the indelible Cacique of this community we’ve been creating, Mario Ponce Pagan Morales!
By day, she works as a Physician Assistant at La Clínica de la Raza.
By night, she can be found reading poetry at open mics from San Francisco to San Juan,
By nature, she is a storyteller recounting that to which she bears witness through her poetic lens.
Susana’s work has appeared in numerous anthologies and literary journals including: The Acentos Review, La Respuesta, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, Poets Reading the News, About Place Journal, Meow Meow Pow Pow Press, Dove Tails, and others.
Her first full-length book of poetry titled: Hurricanes, Love Affairs and Other Disasters, is slated to be released by Nomadic Press in mid to late 2021.
Rich Villar is a poet, educator, and curator originally from Paterson, New Jersey.
He is the author of Comprending Forever (Willow Books, 2014) and his poems are anthologized most recently in What Saves Us: Poems of Empathy and Outrage in the Age of Trump (Curbstone/Northwestern University Press, 2019), and The BreakBeat Poets, Volume 4: LatiNEXT (Haymarket Books, 2020). He is a 2020 New Jersey State Arts Council Fellow and the founder of La Cocina, an interactive event series and grassroots initiative fostering Latinx art, culture, and community.
