Laura Spencer
Monique Gabrielle Salazar

Monique Gabrielle Salazar is a writer, artist and musician. A member of the Latino Writers Collective, she’s also a self-described “collector of nostalgia.”

Here, she reads four poems in a series:

Salazar recently released her first solo EP called Devil’s Pool. She also writes for the website Squeezebox KC and is at work on her first novel, set in a future Kansas City where prohibition is back and so is mob rule.

All of our WORD readings, including bonus tracks by some poets, are archived on SoundCloud.
