My articles have been featured in Miami New Times, Tropicult, Art Slant, Art Slant Street, and miamiartzine. I got an MFA in Poetry in 2017 and I am currently working towards an MFA in Non-fiction.

I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher from Wynwood Yoga and animal rights activist. Bless you and thank you for reading. View all posts by Monica (Vega) Torres
