Have you seen the news? I’m part of Las Musas, an unprecedented group of debut and Sophomore Latinx authors of MG and YA stories. Head over to our website to learn more about us and our books. Although we all come from very diverse backgrounds, we each represents a different aspect of the Latinx experience. In our writing journeys, most, if not all of us, dealt with rejection along the lines of “Oh, I already have a Latina story…” even if the stories were in completely different genres. And if they were in the same genre, so what? Still, not willing to fall into the game of being pitted against each other, we have united our efforts to lift each other up and support our stories. Com and meet us! Read our books! Recommend them to your libraries and bookstores.
