The story was inspired by the PBS documentary ‘Ovarian Psycos‘ about a Latina bike brigade in East Los Angeles. It was also inspired by the Modesta Avila Coalition – a short-lived coalition of non-profit organizations determined to raise awareness of the transportation industry’s polluting effects in Southern California. The story has been described as ‘an edgier version of Erin Brokovich.’ Read “No Trespass” in the February 2019 issue of The Acentos Review.
I will be reading at this year’s SF Lit Crawl! The event is called “University of San Francisco Presents: Risks in Writing,” And it will be on October 20th from 8-9pm. Come out and support me and other great creative writing students at the University of San Francisco. Hope to see you there!
The LitQuake Lit Crawl is a really fun literary pub crawl that is worth attending just to see the diversity amidst the Bay Area literary scene. For more information on events, times, and locations please click here.
