Huizache

Huizache 2013 Front Cover

CentroVictoria’s third issue of Huizache follows in the path of those previous with yet another display of original literature and unique voices from this side of America. We are proud to present the work of such honored writers as Tim Seibles, Domingo Martinez, Cristina García, Juan Felipe Herrera, and Héctor Tobar, while highlighting the early work of David Campos, Tameka Cage Conley, Casandra Lopez, and Joshunda Sanders--and many others. With our stunning new design both inside and out, a cover from the art of LA's fabulous and famed Gronk, our #3 issue is poetry and prose not just from the Latino world, though much is, not just from the West, though much is, but from a new American country.

Huizache 2012 Front Cover

CentroVictoria’s second issue of Huizache follows the lead of its inaugural edition, featuring the leading voices in Latino literature—Lorna Dee Cervantes, Gary Soto, Luis J. Rodriguez, Michele Serros, Rigoberto González—as well names from the Southwest and nation—Naomi Shihab Nye, Beverly Lowry, Achy Obejas, and Carrie Fountain. With this issue, we add the just beginning, younger voices of Matt Mendez, Beverly Parayno, Melisa Garcia, Lupe Mendez, Laurie Ann Guerrero, and many more from across the nation and continent. An added feature is a tribute to the anti-book banning in Arizona, Librotraficante Movement, with prose by its leader, Tony Diaz, and poems in support by Margaret Randall and Levi Romero. Finally, there is the fine art, which Huizache intends to keep as a tradition. The cover is by Patssi Valdez, arguably the best artist working in Los Angeles today, and the gorgeous panoramic photography of Houston’s acclaimed Chuy Benitez.

Huizache 2011 Front CoverCentroVictoria is excited to announce its new literary magazine, Huizache, featuring poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. The magazine’s title is inspired by the huizache tree, a Texas acacia as thorny and tenacious as it is both invisible and ubiquitous, unwanted by farmers. Like its namesake, the magazine will promote fierce beauty that has been ignored. The voices in this magazine are motivated, not silenced, by harsh, unwelcoming conditions.

The debut issue includes prose and poetry from Sherman Alexie, Hettie Jones, Maria Venegas, Willie Perdomo, Aracelis Girmay, Tim Z. Hernandez, Sheryl Luna, Edward C. Corral, Alex Espinoza, Diana Garcia, Estella Gonzalez, Juan Felipe Herrera, José Montoya, Gary Soto, Sandra Cisneros, Sasha Pimentel-Chacón, Tonantzín Canestaro-García, David Garza, Emmy Pérez, Benjamin Alire Saenz, Tim Seibles, and Rene Perez, with original art from the renowned César A. Martínez.
