by Eva Martinez

Overview
Poetry in Flight/Poesia en vuelo: Anthology in Celebration of El Tecolote, is the long-awaited book of community-based poetry coming out of San Francisco’s Mission district. This powerful anthology, edited by the late Francisco X. Alarcon, Eva Martinez and Nina Serrano with assistance by Harold Terezon, features 69 insightful contemporary poems in Spanish, English and Spanglish by 56 fiery poets speaking with a lyrical passion on equality, inclusion, freedom, justice, gender identity, gentrification and more. United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera penned the foreword, which celebrates the literary legacy of the community-based bilingual newspaper, El Tecolote, which produced a quarterly literary supplement in the 1980s as a publishing space for Latino writers. Herrera writes, “This is the El Tecolote Anthology, the pioneering, fiery, soulful eye of this community, keeping watch and ward on our realities, without borders—even if the border makers insist on doing their border work. This is a volume of dreams, battle, play and the magic of the people—new freedom of thought warriors, word-salseras,—checking on that odd-angled thing called "progress," on that viral tsunami of corporate, social and economic encroachment.” Beloved local artist Juan R. Fuentes created beautiful art for the book cover, which was designed by Adrian Arias. In addition to the poems the book contains a history of El Tecolote newspaper and a preface by the editors.
