I Can Be Your Poet: Edyka Chilome
April is National Poetry Month, and this week we’re featuring Latinx poet, Edyka Chilomé.
Edyka is a cultural worker based in North Texas. She has been asked to share her poetry and speak on social justice issues on multiple media platforms and in spaces around the country and Latin America including TedX, NPR, and The Huffington Post. Edyka has produced and published numerous articles, essays, plays, and poems including a collection of poetry that explores queer indigenous mestizaje in the diaspora entitled “She Speaks | Poetry”.
