Misael Juarez is a Los Angeles Zapotec who writes to alleviate the intensity of psychosis and schizo-affective disorder, while achieving a voice for the faceless working-class people, the unjustly caged-up children, the vatos locos coming from the bottom, y las chavas. His works speak to the lonely community of schizophrenics out there. His craft is for those who pay attention to rap lyrics and for lovers of romantic love poetry, barrio ascension, gems of wisdom, and revolutionary and social justice with a touch of wild scenic. My Spoken Word Wife: A Wild, Street, Romantic, and Revolutionary Journey highlights all of these themes and aims, and centers on respect for feminine virtues. He’s the poetic soldier from every dark corner in the city, a true working-class lyricist. My Spoken Word Wife: A Wilde, Street, Romantic, and Revolutionary Journey ishis first publication contract with Barrio Blues Press; it is forthcoming, January 2021.
"Unity Volume 1: A Magical Realism Anthology is a collection of overtly varied short stories and poems from diverse voices. What unites them, however, is a deep visceral nature. Whether it be grief, horror, or romance, this body of work has led me a reader, enough to become an 'insider' to be able to smell the pungent air in the rain; to become the beloved; to feel the horror in the bones or to become enmeshed with the terrible pain. In my view, it's called powerful storytelling ability, where every tear, drops to tell a story, and every verse sings a poetry recital." -Mehreen Ahmed, Moirae
