 Huizache 

 

After eight years, Huizache has established itself as the most prominent Latinx literary magazine in the country and one of the most preeminent in our nation’s and our own community’s history. Every issue is a visual flower, and Huizache #8 has added even more raging bloom to an already luscious garden. This issue’s cover art is by Houston’s photographer Chuy Benitez, of everyone’s favorite Chico’s Tacos in El Paso; its interior art is no less powerful, with graphic pieces by Portland’s Letra Chueca and drawings by Santa Fe’s Israel Francisco Haros Lopez. But of course Huizache is about the literature: poetry by the well-known Sheryl Luna, Maceo Montoya and the always so many young, soon to be luminaries from all over the Southwest, Puerto Rico, and deep into México. Fiction in h8 has one of its best showing in stories by Daniel Chacón, Jaime Gomez, Michael Leal García, and two excerpts from two books set to become monster national reads: a novel by Houston/Liberian Wayétu Moore, and a new memoir by Sacramento/Mexicana Reyna Grande. Huizache always follows the leaders in our art, and by doing so, it leads and projects; it defies cultural haters and dismissers, says No Cages! And exclaims that We Are Here & We Have Been Here All Along & We Will Stay Here. Our talent expands like our population, and so too our boundaries. In this era of racist attacks both coded and direct, Huizache is a tree of sharp thorns that resists that ignorance and ugliness; its scented flowers of art and life, memory and wisdom, grow more fragrant and dazzling in color, grow stronger on our land, in our culture. Huizache’s only want is to be as proud and beautiful as we are, and the magazine is always so gorgeous.
