As a freelance writer, I have written book reviews, conducted interviews and written culturally relevant features for a variety of local and national publications.
Topics I have written about:
- Essays about pop culture and cultural critiques, specifically about speculative and horror stories.
- Profiles of artists and community organizers
- Intersections of Latinx identities and art
- Living with and navigating chronic pain
- Book reviews and interviews with poets, writers and artists
I am particularly interested in writing cultural pieces on chronic illness, community building and pieces that discuss film/TV shows and their cultural impacts. I am also available to write a longer column or ongoing work. Contact me today, I would love to write for you!
