We are thrilled to announce that Angel Dominguez will be our Summer 2023 Resident! Dominguez is a Latinx poet and artist of Yucatec Maya descent, born in Hollywood and raised in Van Nuys, CA by their immigrant family. They’re the author of Desgraciado: (the collected letters); RoseSunWater; and Black Lavender Milk. You can find Angel’s words online and in print in various publications including BOMB Magazine, The Berkeley Poetry Review, FENCE, Prolit Magazine, SFMOMA Open Space, and elsewhere.
We look forward to hosting Dominguez this summer at the Poetry Center!
The Poetry Center’s Residency program is an opportunity intended to expand our ability to support new and established poets. Resident poets are invited for a 1–2-week residency at the Poetry Center's Lois Shelton Poets Cottage, located just steps away from the Center's renowned library of contemporary poetry. During their time in Tucson, the poet will lead a community class, present new work in a public reading, and spend time focusing on a new project. This new residency model will allow us to invite 3 poets annually, (Summer, Spring, Fall), and encourage the creation of new work by poets whose work cultivates belonging.
