The past is an opaque chapter of life, especially when there are events that family members would rather forget or make forgotten. The week’s bundle contains two pieces of fiction, with subject family history.
The first piece in this bundle is Cuban Mestiza by Michelle Lizet Flores.
Being a native Floridian and current resident, Flores is happy to have returned to the land where trees don’t sleep. A graduate of FSU and NYU creative writing programs, she currently works as a 5th grade teacher where she fosters the next generation of American writers. She has previously been published in magazines such as Cagibi, Azahares, and The Ear, and has work forthcoming in Gravel Magazine, The Bookends Review, the St. Katherine Review, Clockhouse, and The Paragon Journal.
