This issue is dedicated to explore contemporary Brazilian feminist poetics. Brazilian poets Adelaide Ivánova, Adriana Zapparoli, Carla Diacov, Érica Zingano, Flávia Rocha, Jussara Salazar and Virna Teixeira are published in translation in the habitual bilingual amazing edition of the magazine co-edited by Jèssica Pujol and Virna Teixeira.
We also invited two Brazilian writers, Cristina Judar and Assionara Souza, who contributed with short stories for this issue. Latin America has a very high prevalence of gender violence, with Brazil occupying recently the fifth position in the world ranking of female murders.
This special edition aims to reflect on this alarming violence against women in Brazil, and on how Brazilian women poets reflect about the theme in their writing.
