WRITERS ON WRITING #96: Joshua Jennifer Espinoza

I’m not interested so much in being included as I am in fucking shit up.  Representation, to me, implies subsumption. I don’t want to belong in this world.  I want to end it and make something new, something better.  That said, the ways in which certain folks are institutionally excluded from the literary world are glaring.  There is work out there that deserves to be heard that is instead being actively silenced while racists, transmisogynists, and other bigots are given platforms for their mediocre and harmful shit.
