Professor Maceo Montoya's First Publication in Huizache


Huizache Cover


Professor Maceo Montoya was the editor of his first publication in "Huizache"! 

Founded in 2011 by celebrated Chicano author Dagoberto Gilb, the magazine was looking for a new home and Professor Montoya saw the opportunity of bringing it to UC Davis.

For its tenth issues, he assembled a wonderful editorial team, including Carribean Fragoza as prose editor, León Salvatierra and Javier O. Huerta as poetry editors, and associate editor Vanessa Díaz, a talented poet who was a student in his first class at UC Davis twelve years ago.

The book artist, Stephanie Sauer, did a beautiful job redesigning the issue, including a special edition dust jacket that pays homage to legendary writer Helena María Viramontes whose novel-in-progress is excerpted in the issue.
