​The Latino Literary Online Magazine 

​Somos en escrito Magazine and Somos en escrito Literary Foundation Press is dedicated to publishing raza authors to express the narratives and needs of our communities, which typically get overlooked by the mainstream presses. We intend to be the institution nobody else will build for us.

We seek to publish books that look to the future, where gente exist, that finds solutions in storytelling, rather than provide mere visibility.

We promote narratives that break cycles, call to action: fiction that goes hand in hand with our nonfiction books that allow our community to do more than gaze in the mirror, but meditate on solutions within, the future, and transformation.
