This event's panel of Latinx poets will discuss the trials and tribulations they have experienced as writers: the rejections, the glories, and everything in between. These poets are looking forward to sharing their experiences of the challenges of being a modern Latinx poet, and why we need more Latinx poets now more than ever.
