This event is the Official Launch of the Fall Issue of Aster(ix), guest-edited by Vanessa Mártir. The issue tackles the theme of home: home as a person or place; home as a longing for something past that no longer exists; home as nostalgia, as genesis, a beginning, an end, and the journey in between. Maya Angelou once said, “The ache for home lives in all of us.” We hope the pieces in this issue serve to assuage that ache, if only for a moment.
The journal features writers Glendaliz Camacho, Nívea Castro, Anthony Morales, Tanya Pérez-Brennan, Luivette Resto,Gabby Rivera, Joshunda Sanders, Melissa Sipin-Gabon, and Rich Villar.
Founded and edited by Angie Cruz and under the Artistic Direction of Adriana E. Ramirez, Aster(ix) Journal is a forum where invited guest editors curate new issues on a theme of their choosing. Each issue will serve as an archived conversation among artists, writers, activists and critics publishing fiction, poetry, nonfiction, criticism, visual art, plays, videos and interviews.
