Open Door Reading Series Online: Isaías Rogel

Our own Isaías Rogel is reading next week with the Poetry Foundation. Tuesday, October 12, 2021, 6:00 PM–7:00 PM MT

 Don’t miss it. Here is more information and Zoom registration information:

Join us for a live virtual reading with Matt Bodett, Amanda Goldblatt, Isaías Rogel, and Ricardo Mondragon. The Open Door series presents work from new and emerging poets and highlights writing instruction and poetic partnerships. Each event features readings by two Midwest-based writers and two of their current or recent students or writing partners. 

Isaías Rogel is an MFA student in New Mexico State University’s Creative Writing program and is pursuing a graduate certificate in Borderlands and Ethnic Studies. As the prose editor for Puerto del Sol, they advocate for queer Latinx writers and underrepresented writers of color. Their creative work is informed by 25+ years of living in the Humboldt Park and Hermosa neighborhoods of Chicago. Their fiction explores navigating an alternative queer Latinx identity in a hypermasculine Latinx community undergoing gentrification and processing/healing from intergenerational trauma.
