​The Latino Literary Online Magazine 

Somos en escrito publishes work important to the Indigenous-Hispanic community.  Writings with the voice and content necessary to see and know ourselves and for other others to know us. Writings that represent the full spectrum of our experience that may not fit the notions of others in the US. Writings that ensure the acceptance of Indigenous-Hispanic literature as very much integral to American literature. Click here for more information.
