  • The BreakBeat Poets series has a proven track record. This volume will build on the success of The BreakBeat Poets, The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 2: Black Girl Magic, and The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 3: Halal If You Hear Me, while charting its own path highlighting urgent, necessary work by a dynamic and diverse array of Latinx and diasporic poets. 
  • The audience for poetry continues to grow, in a renaissance led by poets from a diversity of backgrounds, including Latinx poets like José Olivarez, Elizabeth Acevedo, Ada Límon, Javier Zamora, and Eloisa Amezcua.
  • The anthology will be promoted by its 60+ contributors, a community of educators and poets spread across the country.
  • Editor José Olivarez’s solo collection Citizen Illegal was released to widespread critical acclaim in September 2018 on Haymarket Books, and was nominated for the PEN/Jean Stein Book Award.
