Red Dragon Reading Series–SUNY Oneonta


Thanks to Dr. Sheena Mason for inviting me to read at the college’s Red Dragon Reading Series on November 10, 2022, to commemorate the Black List. I read excerpts from two stories in Migrations: “Clemente Burning,” an early version of the beginning of my novella, Clemente Between the Worlds; and “Sucio.” I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the exchange with the audience and also the conversation as a guest with creative writing students in Prof. Tully’s class.

Humanities and Stable Careers


This was a wide open conversation with Dr. Jeniree Flores for her podcast, LatinXCan. It’s a wonderful podcast that features diverse Latinx professionals talking about their careers and related topics. I got a chance to talk about my new collection of stories, Migrations. But I also discussed shared details about my academic career, writing, and language. All of this led to a lively discussion on stable careers in the humanities. Listen in and learn why you will not starve if you study the humanities. In fact, you might be surprised to know people majoring in the humanities not only find stable careers, but do quite well for themselves! It’s episode 37 on this link: https://cms.megaphone.fm/channel/latinxcan
