Buena Gente/Good Folk:
Maya suffered an accident last week and is in recovery and unable to travel.
May the ancestors guide her as she heals. And, we, here, at Red Salmon Arts and Resistencia Bookstore send her lots of love and light.
We are also asking folks to honor this event in lieu of her absence in several ways: 1) Buy Maya’s book and a portion will go to support her growing medical bills. 2) Take a photo with her book at Resistencia Bookstore so we can post it on Instagram and her well wishes. 3) Sign the a get well card so Maya knows that Austin/Tejas folk support, miss her, would like to meet her, and send her lots of love—revolutionary, POC, and queer love.
Her work has been published in anthologies and journals including: Mujeres de Maíz, Sinister Wisdom, Americas y Latinas: A Stanford Journal of Latin American Studies, Cipactli Journal, and The Lunada Literary Anthology. Maya is a founding member of the performance group Las Manas, a former artist-in-residence at Galería de La Raza in San Francisco, CA, and La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley, CA, and is a VONA Voices, Dos Brujas and Letras Latinas workshop alum. She is the co-editor of “Desde El Epicentro: An anthology of Central American Poetry and Art” and is a lecturer at San Francisco State University, UC Davis and other bay area universities.
