We have something to say!
LatineLit publishes short stories written by and about Latinx people. By promoting our authors, as well as other Latinx writers, we aim to create opportunities to showcase new works and celebrate the diverse experiences and perspectives of our community. LatineLit features fiction written in English that relates to the indigenous, African diaspora, Asian, and Spanish and Portuguese roots of our people. We support gay, lesbian, trans, genderfluid, cisgender and straight writers with the goal of making sure everyone’s voices are heard.
