Lenguas Revoltosas: Writers of Color Disrupting Traditional Literary Zones

Sehba Sarwar will be participating in a panel discussion at the 2019 AWP Conference & Bookfair with Alan Pelaez Lopez, Veronica Reyes, Olga Garcia Echeverria, and Maya Chinchilla.

"Ethnic identity is twin skin to linguistic identity—I am my language" wrote the legendary poet-scholar Gloria Anzaldúa. Despite the rich linguistic/cultural diversity within the US, the primary passport in mainstream publishing continues to be monolinguistic. This multi-genre reading features Latinx and writers of color with unruly tongues disrupting English-only literary zones and challenging narrow perceptions of what constitutes Latinx and POC writing and identity.
