Music, a pinata, and tequila have been added to the line-up for the Mexican event this Thursday (29 April) at the CCA in Glasgow. The music will be provided by Juana Adcock.
Born in Mexico in 1982, Juana writes poetry and prose in English, Spanish and Spanglish – and works as a freelance translator. In 2006, she was awarded a creative writing fellowship by the Centro de Escritores de Nuevo León. In 2009, she completed the MLitt in Creative Writing at Glasgow University.
Her work has been anthologised in (In)Fidelity (Freight Press, Glasgow, 2008), Antología Mínima del Orgasmo (Ediciones Intempestivas, Monterrey, 2009), Skräp-Poesi 2 (Poesía con C, Malmö, 2009) and published in magazines such as Gutter (Glasgow, 2009), Metrópolis (Guadalajara, 2009) and Posdata (Monterrey, 2006). She has collaborated in several music projects in Mexico and Scotland, combining music and spoken word, and has performed her work in Latin American poetry festivals in Frankfurt, Berlin, Malmö, Helsinki and Monterrey.
Please note that poet David Huerta is not now able to travel to Glasgow for this event. His poems will be read by his translators.
We look forward to seeing you at the CCA!
