We announced last week that a poem by Daniel Soto (Creative Writing MFA candidate) had been selected as one of 2014's best.
Here is some additional news...
Daniel is a finalist for the 2014 Ræd Leaf International Poetry Award and will have five poems published in the Ræd Leaf Poetry Award Anthology 2014. Read more about Ræd Leaf Poetry (India).
In April, Daniel will be a guest lecturer (on the subject of gentrification in NYC) in Professor Diane Wong's course Government 1101 at Cornell University. Professor Wong has assigned one of Daniel's articles ("Gentrifyng New York City's Underground"), from his series at LatinoRebels.com.
Daniel's poems will appear in the forthcoming anthology Fathers, Fathering, and Fatherhood: Queer Chicano Desire and Belonging (Gibrán Güido and Adelaida R. Del Castillo, Editors).
