#TPQ5: ADRIAN ERNESTO CEPEDA

Sandra Cisneros

The Latinx poet who has brought the poetic to her prose. She gives Latinx poets and writers the strength to write, live and explore our vida lives in our own Lenuga Voces.

Pablo Neruda

He was the one that started it off for me. He is the Father of Romantic Love Poetry. He is all corazon and I wouldn’t be a poet if it wasn’t for Pablo.

Sylvia Plath

One of the most daring and underrated poets in our whole American canon. Her writing inspires all poets and writers to be brave and fearless. A writer everyone should rediscover. She is a genius. I love her so.

Anaïs Nin

One of the bravest and most inspirational and often unsung writers. She lived her life like a wildfire between and outside the lines within her prose and off the page.

Charles Bukowski

Although he is always seen as a barfly poet, there is a lost romantic voice. His career is the example of perseverance that we all can learn from and I love that he always had an affinity for cats.


Adrian Ernesto Cepeda is the author of Flashes & Verses… Becoming Attractions from Unsolicited Press So Many Flowers, So Little Time from Red Mare Press, Between the Spine published with Picture Show Press and La Belle Ajar, inspired by Sylvia Plath’s 1963 novel, will be published by CLASH Books in 2020.
