Thanks to the editors of DASH literary journal, a very dedicated group of students from the Department of English at California State University, Fullerton, and to the Faculty Advisor, Irena Praitis. The tenth anniversary issue of DASH, corresponding to Spring 2017, has just arrived to my place in Singapore, and includes two of my poems: “mango river” and “Altitude.” Whereas the latter poem owes much to fantasy, the former is based on memories of summers spent with siblings and cousins at my cousins’ finca in Daule, in the outskirts of Guayaquil.
DASH publishes poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, criticism, art and hybrid texts with diverse topics, themes, and styles. DASH favors brief, condensed works.
The issues are not available online, so I’ll share the poems in due course.
DASH will reopen for submissions in October, via Submittable.
