Alexandra Muñoz is a daughter of immigrants, an avid reader, and a collector of eclectic playlists. A California native raised in Texas, she now resides in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Here she is site supervisor and program specialist for an after school program at a local high school, and continues writing in preparation for graduate school applications.
While an undergraduate at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, she was senior poetry editor for the university’s first undergraduate literary journal, The Talon. In the spring of 2017 she presented a research paper on methods and second language acquisition theories at NSU’s Visions Conference, which won best in panel. She was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in English, with minors in Applied Linguistics and Creative Writing, as well as an English as a Second Language certificate.
You can find her work in zines and literary journals such as Nude, and Nasty Women Northwest Arkansas, both of which were put on by the talented fine arts photographer Helen Maringer and sold at Fayetteville, Arkansas’s own independently owned bookshop Nightbird Books; her own zine, that resulted from her undergraduate portfolio, American Spirits and Dead Queens, published through the Tulsa based Broken Thumb Press ; Northeastern State University’s first ever issue of The Talon, among others. Now here, on this blog she has tried time and time again to start. Intertwined with poetry, you will find her love for digital photography, hiking, and connecting with other artists.
