Twee•to•rias aim to participate in the bilingual/bicultural discourse by privileging narratives about the immigrant experience from our points of view.
LatinoLA asked Ruth Livier of Livier Productions a few questions to add a little light to Twee•to•rias
LatinoLA: How often will new Twee•to•rias be published?
Ruth Livier: Quarterly.
LatinoLA: How do you choose your illustrators / storytellers?
Ruth Livier: I am reaching out to my friends in the Entertainment industry to illustrate short stories about the Latina/Latino experience. The first short stories are written by me, but, once we get the ball rolling, the goal is to showcase short stories by or about Latinas. Our first short story, "Language Skills" features illustrations by Yareli Arizmendi and Sergio Arau.
LatinoLA: Will Twee•to•rias be bilingual?
Ruth Livier: Bilingual stories are more than welcome, but it is not a requirement. Our goal is to feature stories about the Latina/o experience from our perspective.
