Split This Rock Poetry Festival

Split This Rock Poetry Festival

Raspa Magazine will hosting a reading and discussion at the 2016 Split This Rock Poetry Festival. We will have specific dates and times for the session as we get closer to the event date. Please find below our session title and description. 


Increasing queer visibility through independent publication: a reading and discussion.

The representation of the queer Latina/Latino community in mainstream imagery is limited to a vision lacking depth and complexity. Usually fixating on a cultural stereotype or a pre-conceived notion of sexuality, often marginalized if it does not adhere itself to exploitation. Contemporary queer Latina/Latino poets, editors, and publishers are creating their own spaces that allow for the exploration of other messages such as; identity, organizing, writing, family, and social justice. Through the discussion of these fundamental themes we hope to increase visibility, foster solidarity, and raise awareness of diverse representations of the queer Latina/Latino community. Featured authors of Raspa Magazine, a queer Latino literary magazine, will read and discuss their work, their experience with independent publications, and the challenges faced in order to maintain such mediums viable.
