In moving and powerful poetry, memoir pieces, short stories, personal essays and vignettes, Somos Xicanas will reveal and explore the diverse ways Xicana identity impacts lifestyle, values, principles, political stances, education, anti-colonialism resistance, brown female empowerment, spirituality, relationships to ancestral knowledge, motherhood, future generations, indigenous activism, La Lucha movement, art, etc.
We will be announcing the rest of the contributors soon!
Thank you for your submissions!
We were absolutely inundated with last minute submissions to this anthology! Mil gracias to all of you who poured your hearts out into your writings for this project!
This winter, our staff will be carefully considering all your submissions, as we curate the anthology. It is important to us that a diverse range of voices be represented. While we don't wish to exclude anyone, the sheer volume of submissions forces us to accept only a limited number into the anthology. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we make our selections.
Sometime between now and this spring you will each receive a notification of whether or not your work has been accepted into the anthology. For those whose work has been accepted, you will retain the copyrights. We look forward to working with each of the contributors as the anthology develops!
