 Huizache 7

 

Now in its seventh year, HUIZACHE—the nation’s leading Latino literary magazine, home to world-class poetry, fiction, and essays from the original American West—is thrilled to launch yet another blockbuster issue featuring writers from the established Latino literary cannon and, as always, new voices with cutting-edge talent impossible to ignore. Today the West and Southwest are exploding with art and culture rooted in centuries of tradition and fueled at once by history and a new contemporary culture. The cities that once circumscribed our western frontier—El Paso, San Antonio, Chicago, Denver, Tucson, Austin, San Francisco, Juárez, San Diego, Fresno, and Los Angeles—are pounding with life. They are renewed by fresh voices and faces who are inspired by the sights, sounds and music of their own culture and times. Not outsiders searching for “exotic” accents, they are the local voices of storytellers and poets whose families have called those cities home for generations.

These voices are no longer waiting to be discovered by New York, and HUIZACHE both generates and memorializes the movement, this literary explosion. “It’s not just because HUIZACHE seeks and finds and gathers and publishes what no other literary magazine in the country does, beautifully, but because the poems, stories, and essays inside are as good as any in the best magazines or journals anywhere,” says writer and the magazine’s founding editor Dagoberto Gilb.

The seventh issue of HUIZACHE features cover art by emerging Latinx illustrator Isabel Castro, a young San Antonio native, and a spellbinding collection of work from internationally prominent literary icons Sandra Cisneros, Gary Soto, Dagoberto Gilb, and Alicia Gaspar de Alba. There are remarkable “lesser-knowns”:  Tucson’s Farid Matuk and Cassie Gonzales, LA’s Raquel Gutiérrez, Mexico City’s Gabriela Jauregui, San Diego-bred veteran Taco Shop Poet Adolfo Guzmán-López, and Utah-born Mario Chard. Illustrations are from comic book legend Jaime Crespo, and the young Daniel Parada and Breena Nuñez Peralta—art that was curated by Latino Comics Expo co-founder Ricardo Padilla.
