The anthology, X LA Poets, will highlight the work of ten women poets defining what it means to call Los Angeles home, while at the same time, envisioning a futuristic, multitudinous Los Angeles. The panoply of poetic voices contained in this anthology will inspire and astound, celebrate and eviscerate the written word and the emotive breath.
"XLA Poets is a poetry landscape deep in color, and expanding way over its geographical claim. This collection of poetry is the coming together of humanity, crowded together, in a dense richness, only possible in a city like Nuestra Se ora de Los Angeles, California. Each poet gives the reader a unique window, a precise geographical, time stamped location. Aqui estamos To find your bearings in the literary possibilities of LA, you need to visit this anthology. Look up, and see a goddess riding a dragon over the stadium the LA Raiders once played in. Pour tea, drink beer, ride the boulevard with the top down. These ten poets will make you want to stay in each page. Read, visit often and remember, XLA Poets."
