Writing Diversely Interview
This month’s Writing Diversely interview is with Author Sonora Reyes and we’re discussing intersectional characters (mental illness, neurodivergence, physical disability, LGBTQ+, and Mexican Indigenous identity). Born and raised in Arizona, Sonora Reyes is the author of The Lesbiana’s Guide to Catholic School and the forthcoming contemporary young adult novel The Luis Ortega Survival Club. They write fiction full of queer and Latinx characters in a variety of genres, with current projects in both kidlit and adult categories. Sonora is also the creator and host of the Twitter chat #QPOCChat, a monthly community-building chat for queer writers of color.
