#TPQ5: EDWARD VIDAURRE

Daniel García Ordaz

Lyrical and crafty. Daniel knows how to weave stories into poems of thought and familiar voices.

Jo Reyes-Boitel

One of the most creative writers of our time. Weaves poetry into verse, metaphors, and life lessons.

Odilia Galván Rodríguez

The intelligence in her writings are ancestral wisdom on the page. It’s time for the world to know this.

Amalia Leticia Ortiz

Poetry of activism that is necessary, she destroys and educates you. A true Anzaldúan student!

Naomi Shihab Nye

She’s taught me to listen, pace myself, take deep breaths, and go for the jugular with my pen. Her writings are chants and prayers for the heart, mind, and soul.


Edward Vidaurre’s poems have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Texas Observer, Avalon Literary Review, The Acentos Review, Poetrybay, as well as other journals and anthologies. He is the 2018-2019 City of McAllen,TX Poet Laureate and publisher of FlowerSong Books.
