WOW! achiote press has just been spotlighted at CRITICAL MASS: the blog of the national book critics circle board of directors.
Rigoberto Gonzalez notes the newest issue of Achiote Seeds (featuring Cristina Garcia, Brenda Cardenas, Gabriela Erandi Rico and Emmy Perez) by writing:
“Four distinct Latina voices come together in this startling bilingual collection of poems that cover plenty of fertile ground, from history to feminism, from prayer to politics.”
