Found this online source today called the Teacher’s Voice. A publication filled with poems and articles by and from Latino teachers who also write creatively. They have a great page called the war on public education. I wish I could get some of my essays revised and ready to go to submit to their open call. I’ve written a few essays on the old neighborhood and how my family and grandparents felt about education–the mixed message and the contradictions. I wonder if I can get these revised and polished.
John Paul Jaramillo’s debut story collection The House of Order was named a 2013 Int’l Latino Book Award Finalist, and his most recent work Little Mocos is now available from Twelve Winters Press. In 2013 Latino Boom: An Anthology of U.S. Latino Literature listed Jaramillo as one of its Top 10 New Latino Authors to Watch and Read. He is currently a professor of composition and literature at Lincoln Land College-Springfield, Illinois.
