Poetry. Latinx Studies. Marisol Baca's debut collection TREMOR is a journey through shimmering landscapes and innerscapes. Interlacing the past and the present through the lens of her Mexican-American heritage, Baca unspools profound connections — life and death, her grandmother's legacy and earth's graces — in poems that move the reader with quiet strength and honesty. Both narrative and lyrical, Baca's poems are like small earthquakes that move you subtly but undeniably; life is changed after reading her.
Marisol Baca's poetry has been published in Narrative Northeast, Riverlit, Shadowed: An Anthology of Women Writers and The Acentos Review, among others. She was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and later settled in Fresno, California. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Cornell and is a professor of English at Fresno City College.
