Martinez, Anna

“Anna C. Martinez is Albuquerque’s sixth Poet Laureate, appointed June 29 at a gala Albuquerque Museum ceremony, to serve a two- year term starting July 1 by the city’s Poet Laureate Program with Mayor Keller’s approval. Martinez, a mother and grandmother who was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Española New Mexico, is well-known as a performing poet who delivers defiant, sometimes raunchy and often humorous diatribes against injustice and ignorance as well as crowd-pleasing celebratory sensual incantations of shared pride and joy in our very special New Mexico experiences of life and love.” – The Paper “Meet ABQ’s Newest Poet Laureate”
