CentroVictoria of the University of Houston-Victoria is excited to announce a new literary magazine, Huizache, featuring poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Huizache seeks works that challenge ethnic, gender, or social stereotypes, and though the magazine’s focus is Latino, it is not limited to it.
This magazine is available for purchase to UHVconnect members and non members. You do not have to sign in to make your purchase.
For six years, HUIZACHE has been at the forefront of Latino literature and art. It has featured works by poet laureates, MacArthur and Guggenheim fellows, and winners of many prestigious awards. HUIZACHE has also shared the talents of new writers who have moved on to publish celebrated books. On the first six issues is cover art by César A. Martínez, Patssi Valdez, Gronk, Lalo Alcaraz, Diane Gamboa, and John Valadez and within its pages are works by Juan Felipe Herrera, Sandra Cisneros, Gary Soto, Lorna Dee Cervantes, Tim Seibles, Benjamin Alire Saenz, Naomi Shihab Nye, Héctor Tobar, Domingo Martinez, Terrance Hayes, Laurie Ann Guerrero, ire’ne lara silva, Cornelius Eady, Jésus Salvador Treviño, and countless others. As promised in its first issue, HUIZACHE continues to provide a home for voices that are often overlooked or, when seen, deliberately ignored. To hold the first six issues of HUIZACHE is to hold the history of a people that is as persistent and gold as the magazine’s namesake, the huizache tree.
