Talking about sexual trauma can be hard, so it was really inspiring talking to Rios about how her writing is one of the ways that she copes with her dark history. In her first collection The Pulse Between Dimensions & the Desert she began to dip into that darkness that in Itzá she submerges full on. She talked about how magic & spirituality & nature inspire & strengthen her spirit. Itzá is a powerful, lyrical & highly intimate journey that is as filled with light as it is with the painful darkness of childhood memories. Her style is reminiscent of Magical Realism. It is experimental & free flowing. You will not find another writer who writes like her because she is in a category all her own & she defies definition. Join us for this very special & witchy episode of GET LIT WITH LEZA!
