Hi everyone, I'm currently editing an Encyclopedia of Latino Literature for Students for ABC-Clio with my colleague, Lacie Buckwalter, and I'm looking for some last minute contributors to write the encyclopedia entries for some authors (I am missing only the following entries) that some scholars here might be interested in writing. Please message me at if you are interested and I'll send you more information about the project. Most of the entries are around 1,000-1,500 words, due July 5, 2020The authors/entries are:

  • Campo, Rafael (1964-)
  • Casal, Lourdes (1938-1981)
  • Environmentalism
  • Fornés, María Irene (1930-2018)
  • Pietri, Pedro (1944-2004)
  • Stavans, Ilán (1961-)
  • Suárez, Virgilio (1962-)
  • TENAZ (Teatro Nacional de Aztlán)
  • The Nuyorican Poets (Miguel Alagrín, Pedro Pietri, José Ángel Figueroa, Miguel Piñero, Sandra María Estéves, Tato Laviera, Jesús Papoleto Meléndez)
  • Valdez, Luis (1940-)
