ELANA CHAVEZ grew up in the Central Valley of California with hard working, creative parents, a handful of younger siblings and dogs. She found her way to a love of words by reading the tiniest dictionary in an old Datsun with her beloved Abuelo while waiting for their beloved Abuela to finish shopping the clearance rack at Macy's. Last summer her dear friends designed and published her very first chapbook, "Of a Substance". She is currently collaborating with Jackqueline Frost on a long poem piece dealing in geography, relation, inertia and speciation.

For the past seeming millenia, they've been working on El cuerpo lábil/The Easy Body, a codex on dispossesion, borders, failed revolution, and motherhood.
