AUTO-POETIC (a water-colored self-portrait in hallucinogenic metaphors) by Dukardo Hinestrosa, the recipient of POETS AGAINST WAR International Poetry Award from Caza de Poesía in 2007, Hinestrosa reaffirms the condition of being a poet in our time. His poetry is vaccinated against false sentimentality and phony politics, with a dose of black humor and piercing irony.”

CON LOS MISMOS OJOS by Dora Magaña

CON LOS MISMOS OJOS by Dora Magaña:


ISBN9781936293094

Dora Magaña’s writing in resistance serves as testament of a generation whose memory persists beyond the grave. By exposing the wounds, it helps an entire immigrant community to heal from the ever bitter “pills of oblivion” imposed on them by the contradictions of the sociopolitical system in which they are force to live.

Antonieta Villamil author of the book Arcana de Los Dominios Imaginantes


ANTONIETA VILLAMIL is an international award winning bilingual poet, writer, singer and editor with over 11 published books. She focuses her writing on the forgotten ones and honors them with a persistence that compels us to hear their voices. She directs the review and salon “Poesía Féstival” that brings poetry to the underserved community of native Spanish speakers in Los Angeles.

Villamil brings a cross-cultural experience. She presents poetry with a mixture of readings and brief stanzas in an eclectic style using voice and deep song of a multitude of cultures. She speaks poetry as if it were a musical score. The result is an alchemical mixture of rhythms and voices from India, the Middle East, Spain, to the Latino-African, and indigenous peoples of America.

The Cervantes Institute of New York and Literacy Now awarded her the “14 International Latino Book Award, Best Book of Poetry”, and she won the “International Poetry Award Gastón Baquero” in Spain. The documentary “Voices In Wartime”, features her next to Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, Walt Whitman, among others. Her poetry appears alongside Amiri Baraka, Luis J. Rodriguez, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, among others, selected by Jack Hirschman for the anthology “Revolutionary Poets Brigade, Volume I”, edited and published by Mark Lipman. She has published in the anthologies "Wide Awake: Poets of Los Angeles and Beyond" edited by Susanne Lummis and published by Pacific Coast Poetry Series/Beyond Baroque Books, "Coiled Serpent" edited by Luis J. Rodriguez and published by Tia Chucha's Press, and "The Border Crossed Us" edited by Mark Lipman and published by Vagabond Books.

Poetry in Motion of The Poetry Society of America published her poem “Green Shoes / Zapatos Verdes” on poster and bookmark form. Antonieta Villamil is available for Spanish-English, bilingual book presentations, poetry festivals, poetry readings, book fairs, and literary performances. —Poets and Writers.

About the book "Arcana de Los Dominios Imaginantes" written by Antonieta Villamil.

This edition is the complete final version of the original book, which launched Antonieta Villamil’s career as a poetic force to be reckoned with.

Antonieta Villamil gives voice to the heartbreaking effects of the perpetual civil wars that emerge in Central and South America. Presenting the generations of people that simply disappear in these wars, Villamil uses poetry to connect with the memory of her brother Pedro, who is a victim of disappearance. Antonieta Villamil reiterates the role of the poet in society: “to be the conscience of a community or a culture”.

Antonieta Villamil’s poetry is engaging from the first page. Its intensity and unique perspective establishes a dialog that connects the reader with poetry of the past. “The surprising originality of Villamil jumps off the page at first glance.

Not only a promise: the poetry of Antonieta Villamil is already a mature contribution of the highest quality.” —Julian Palley, poet and essayist, UC Irvine and PEN West.
