Interviews

Omar Robert Hamilton

The good thing about historical responsibility is that you don’t have to interrogate it too much — you can just run with it.

Ariel Francisco

“I don’t think imitation is bad, like writing a poem in the style of a poet you admire, but it’s a lot more fun for me to engage them directly. I enjoy wearing my influences on my sleeves.”

Guy Delisle

To be completely deprived of your freedom. That always has fascinated me.

Jen George

I don’t write just to see what’ll happen. I’m not interested in hippy art. I’m in conversation with certain things and I work to get all of those things into a unified place.

Eloisa Amezcua

“My hope is that we can dismantle and rebuild a community where we build each other up and support each other instead of trying to keep people/certain work out.”

Deborah Cowen

“This remaking of border management into a zone that aims to be both open and closed – that aims to facilitate trade, but control or contain so-called ‘undersirable flows’ (usually migrants) – is one piece of the rise of a whole new paradigm of security – supply chain security.”

Elizabeth Richebourg Rea

“Short stories as a literary form with popular and commercial appeal are always either dying or making a comeback, it seems.”

Marisa J. Fuentes

“I think anyone working on or in the archives of slavery is dealing with the supernatural.”
