Unsettled/ Inquietos: A collaboration with El Tecolote, the bilingual newspaper of the Mission!

Adriana Camarena is proud to collaborate with Accion Latina to create and distribute “Unsettled/Inquietos,” a series of literary non-fiction essays based on portraits of working class and poor residents of the traditionally Latino Mission District of San Francisco.

The essays will be published in English and Spanish in the bilingual El Tecolote newspaper of Acción Latina in print and online. Links to the essays in English and Spanish are provided below.

Get your fingers inky with a free print copy at a variety of local Mission and San Francisco cafés during the week of publication! (The author encourages this old school experience.)

Threading the Life of a Mayan. Issue #2, Nov. 2, 2017

The “Unsettled/ Inquietos” series is supported by a 2017 Creative Work Fund literary grant.
