Fer de la Cruz

University of California, Irvine
PhD student
Irvine, CA
I have written three books of poetry about Covid-19. Two of them are already published, along with other books of lyric poetry, satirical poetry, poetry for children, and literary translation. After earning an MA from Ohio University, I spent a number of years in my native Yucatan, teaching literature and creative writing, as well as leading open-mic poetry events, and serving as a board member at an amazing local library. Now I´m back in the US earning a PhD at the University of California, Irvine, for the first time in the West Coast. I believe that poetry can be written from life, from emotion, from language or from anything, that every classic or experimental form of poetry is valid, and that, as a 1st-year student, I may learn tomorrow that everything I thought I knew about poetry is simply wrong. I still firmly believe that poetry is what one makes of it.
