Leticia Urieta (she/her/hers) writes fiction that explores the intersections of Latinx identity with the folklore, traditional stories, and the supernatural or speculative.
The collection of texts Leticia will be reading from includes 𝘓𝘢𝘴 𝘊𝘳𝘪𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘢𝘴, a hybrid collection that blends poetic and speculative narrative forms to tell women’s stories that have gone untold, playing with traditional storytelling forms and tales to explore the monstrous, unruly, and vulnerable strength and beauty in the feminine and seek to reclaim people’s power in powerless situations.
Leticia is a Tejana writer from Austin, TX. She is a freelance writer, a teaching artist in the greater Austin community, and the Regional Program Manager of Austin Bat Cave, a literary community serving students in the Austin area.
This program is generously supported by United Way.
