Freelance Work

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
  • 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!

Here are some of my featured pieces:
