Poetry. African American. Latino/Latina. LGBTQIA. Middle Eastern. Native American. The first major literary anthology for queer poets of color in the United States. In 2014, Christopher Soto and Lambda Literary Foundation founded the online journal Nepantla, with the mission to nurture, celebrate, and preserve diversity within the queer poetry community, including contributions as diverse in style and form, as the experiences of QTPOC in the United States. Now, NEPANTLA is in print for the first time as a survey of poetry by queer poets of color throughout U.S. history, including literary legends such as Audre Lorde, James Baldwin, June Jordan, Ai, and Pat Parker alongside contemporaries such as Natalie Diaz, Ocean Vuong, Danez Smith, Joshua Jennifer Espinoza, Robin Coste Lewis, Joy Harjo, Richard Blanco, Erika L. Sánchez, Jericho Brown, Carl Phillips, Tommy Pico, Eduardo C. Corral, Chen Chen, and more.
Christopher Soto is a poet based in Brooklyn. He is the author of Sad Girl Poems, cofounder of the Undocupoets Campaign, and editor of Nepantla: A Journal Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color.Author City: New York, NY USA
