Queen Mob’s Tea House is accepting poetry by Afro-Latinx poets
From haiku to sonnet to free-verse, any format is welcome. Poems that center around the Afro-Latinx experience are of special interest for this issue. No theme or subject matter is off limits as long as the poet identifies as Afro-Latinx.
In the U.S., Latinos with Caribbean roots are more likely to identify as Afro-Latino or Afro-Caribbean than those with roots elsewhere. Those who identify as Afro-Latino are more concentrated on the East Coast and in the South than other Latinos. – Pew Research Center
